Have you ever had a relative tell you what a great sports star they were and if it hadn’t been for that darn knee injury they’d have gone pro?  Well that’s exactly what happened the other day.  A kid came in to see if he could find information on his uncle. It seems his uncle keeps telling him what a great football player he was.  The boy plays football now for a local high school and his uncle says he is a chip off the old block.  We were able to show him old newspapers from the time when his uncle played. He was even able to watch a motion picture out of the Department of Public Instruction Educational Motion Picture Collection where he did see his uncle….as the water boy!
