Prospective Football Players


An undated photo of local Baldwyn boys who might be interested in joining the Bearcat football team at that time. Coach Vandiver is at left rear, and Bro. Gene Crawford in center at rear.

This photo was made in the basement of the old Baptist church on Main Street. Most on the young men are recognizable but if you get stuck for a name, send a comment, please.

From Milton Copeland.

    1. This was a guest from out of town, I am told. He had something to do with sports in schools.

    1. In front of J. Cole - Bozie Wesson; 2 behind Robert Coggins - Ronnie Moore (hesd down)- David Gentry (unsure, but what we see appears to be him). Our expert cannot find Bobby Burns in the photo.

  4. Carl, the one behind Robert Coggins with his head down is probably Joe Cunningham. The other may be Doug White, not sure. Buddy DeVaughn behind Mancil Pruitt. Who is the one in very back between Billy Ray Dobbs and Johnny Miller?

  5. Don't think that's David Gentry. No one else from the Class of '58 is pictured.

  7. After due thought and consultation with some buddies, we have decided this was a get-together to recruit some basketball players instead of football. However it could have either or both...
