Old NFL Telagrams ...

We were going through some of Justins grandfather's old football scrapbooks and came across some really cool telagrams from WT Mara of the New York Giants. Regarding how they were intrested in drafting him the following fall. These are so cool, I can't believe the history in all of these boxes that we are coming across.

In college he earned All-Coast honors as a tackle in 1948 and played in the 1949 East-West Shrine Game. He then was a 1982 inductee into the State of Oregon Sports Hall of Fame.

Here is a neat photo of Bill & Goody after they have arrived in Hawaii. It was on of their favorite places to vacation after he played in the pro bowl in 1955.
