I recently found this drawing of mine in some old photo albums. I believe I was about six years old, making this in 1967 or 1968.
Notice I have my name on the FRONT side of the jersey (those of you who know me are like, “yep, he’s a THREE alright!”). Notice also that I am a running back.
And notice the scoreboard: HPP vs. CtK. What does that mean?
HPP = Highland Park Presbyterian, where I went to kindergarten but not to church. I am apparently “rushing” them to victory 44-21 — though I suspect my touchdown will make it 50-21. (Will we “go for two because we can’t go for three” as Woody Hayes famously said when his Ohio State team hit 50 vs. Michigan in 1968?)
CtK = Christ the King, which I believe was an Episcopalian church in Dallas. I am definitely not referring to CtK in the Steele Creek section of Charlotte, as it was not even born until the mid 1990s.
Unless I knew something ahead of time …
