Old Orrville Sports Photos...Always a Good Time

Wish I could take credit for these, but I can't. At least there's someone else out there who appreciates this kind of stuff. These were found on Facebook, and the person who posted them has commented on this very blog....but only once.

Enjoy the trip down memory lane.

Pic 1. Freshman Basketball Team. Has to be the very early 80's. Maybe someone can help me with the exact date.

So much to be said here.....
Coaches shorts...check
High (striped) socks...check
Umm..."comfortable" shorts....check

Great stuff.

Pic 2. Football Team Picture (1982, I think)

I only count 34 players...that's smaller than our teams today. Eight coaches for 34 players...that's a nice player to coach ratio.

Pic 3. Here's the JV team from that same year...reinforces my belief that this was 1982.

Pic 4. Might as well post the frosh team pic from that season also. This was well before my time, but I know a lot of names and faces on this team.

Pic 5. Here's a classic picture of the 80's baseball uniforms.

There were some others, but these were the cream of the crop. Thanks again to the Facebooker who posted them.

I can comment on the freshman basketball picture. It was a long time ago, but I believe these guys were one year ahead of me. I graduated in 1987 so this pic would be from winter of 1982, if my math is correct.

Great stuff indeed.

What's the deal with the caption on the baseball pic? Rodney is obviously pitching and not making a defensive play. He still has the ball in his hand and his foot is on the rubber for peep's sake!

I guess that was an early 80's caption fail.

And when are stirrups going to make a comeback?

Well, Tim, I was both shocked AND pleased with the freshmen b-ball pic.

Dean is right. It was the '81-82 season.

We were good, too!

I see that MGS 105 is in that pic, as well.

Thanks for the good memories!
