#1 Old friend of ButchRalph K. Banks 2014-04-24 08:53
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of this old friend of mine from Mount Vernon. Butch and I were football teammates with the fighting Mount Vernon Tigers in the season of 1956, and he earned the distinction of being named All-District Center that year despite his being only a Sophomore at the time. May our gracious God comfort his loved ones in this time of what must be great loss to them. Ralph K. Banks, Austin, TX
