I was very glad to see the Deseret News take an interest in the local high school football teams like they use to do back in the 1930s, up to '40s, in your Saturday, Aug. 29, metro edition. This is one thing that I was happy to see your sports section cover.

Ike Armstrong didn't have to go out of state for football players; he brought them from the high schools throughout the state to the U. of U., and we had some good teams. And Utah State did the same.Robert V. Crossley
