Football Team after New London Explosion 1937
Posted by: Michael B Slagle (ID *****3784) Date: July 13, 2009 at 16:19:42

A family story tells of my Uncle Harry Rice who was a resident at Corsicana State Home...it goes that he was recruited to play football at New London because the coach did not have enough players after the explosion. Harry would have graduated about 1939 / 1940.

Harry was a good football player and was recruited by Kansas, SMU, Rice, and TCU.

High schools annuals, news reports, or personal recollection all are potential resources, does anyone have information.

Thank you in advance !!
