for several years. I manage a small home building company. Built
about 70 houses over the last decade and still going. Also take care
of physically challenged wife, so couldn't attend reunion. Happy to
read Buzz Thom's Nov. 10 message. He and John Hudkins were my
friends at MVHS. That '61 football run was fantastic! All victories
till final game. Knocked off San Diego County's No. 1 ranked team
along the way. As we like to say, we put Mar Vista on the map.

the football Mariners. Last night (Nov.9), John Hudkins and I
attended their playoff game with Clairemont High. The Mariners blew
em out, in raw, cold conditions on a sloppy field. The team is
obviously extremely well coaches. NOTE: Hudkins was an all-league
defender from the 1961 team that went 8-1, but which did not make
the playoffs that year.
