The 1966 State Football Champs
Posted Tuesday, January 29, 2013 02:16 PM

I recently read A Glorious Season by Edward L. Mussler (class of '86), about the 1966 Mel High football team that ended up becoming state champions. If, like me, this was a bit before your time, and you'd like a refresher, this is a great book. It was a better book than I expected for something with such a local focus. 

He interviewed many of the original participants, including coach Byrd Wigham and Dr. B. Frank Brown (then principal). 

The book is available through Amazon and from the Melbourne library.
