To combine Word Press, HTML, PHP, SQL, ISP file organization and usage, and all other web-tools for an informative website for San Diego football fans is for me a naturally evolved pursuit. The Football Association, English football’s governing body, was formed in 1863.
Ebenezer Morley, a London solicitor who formed Barnes FC in 1862, could be called the ‘father’ of The Association.
The camaraderie, lasting friendships, ribbing about being in the school chorus, towel snaps in the team shower, called ‘braintrust’ by non-college bound senior teammates for correcting their chemistry homework during homeroom, Atomic balm in the jockstrap, bus rides to away games, free hotdogs after home games, are all cherished memories.
I know and understand why high school sports experiences are held in high esteem. Proudly holding my UCLA bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering I became a San Diego resident in 1970 at NCR, living in Scripps Ranch with Carol since 1972, now in Poway since 1987.
Weighing in at ‘hefty’ 150 pounds, and low on the depth chart behind perennial All-County performers, I nevertheless gave it 100 per cent every day as an offensive and defensive end (#33 below).
Looking back it was one of the best times of my life, as it should be, looking only forward with all dreams and aspirations intact.
