To the editor:

A very singular event in Brownwood High School history took place 45 years ago this week. The Lions Track team won the only state championship in BHS history. This accomplishment seems to get lost amid the seven football championships, but it is unique because it is the only one.

I am proud to have been a member of that great team which included Max Emfinger, Ronnie Jones, Ronnie Davis, Ben Elledge, James Crow, Doug Young, and the best sprinter in BHS history Jerry McCullough. Of course, it was all made possible by Coach Gus Snodgrass.

Congratulations to all the men of that team! Maybe we should have a 50th reunion, if we can live that long.

Jeff. B. Smith
