Pick up your copy of Glory, Jack B. Tany's outstanding history of prep athletics in Saginaw County.
Featuring over 400 pages, this hardbound edition comprehensively covers the accomplishments of individuals and teams from the 36 high schools that have populated the landscape of Saginaw County over the years.
Focusing solely on boys athletics, (a book on girls athletics may be a future project), Tany spent hundreds of hours pouring over microfilm dating back to 1894 in search of the details contained in this publication.
He has compiled area all-time records for many sports, and included numerous photos and fascinating tidbits on the famous and not-so-famous from the area. Mini-biographies on many of the more prominent names are also included.
Some of the sports and athletes featured include:
Baseball (Fred L. "Ted" Petoskey, Sr.; Al
Luplow; Curt Young)
Basketball (Ernie Thompson; Art McColgan; Mark Macon)
Boxing (George "Kid" Lavigne)
Football (Leo "Smokey" Boyd; Carl Diener; Jimmy Ellis; Terry McDaniel, Dick Rifenburg)
Swimming (Dick Weinberg; Howard Patterson)
Track and Field (Bill Watson, Ralph Schwarzkoph)
Wrestling (Gary Kipfmiller)
A great gift for the holidays!
