As reported 28 years ago in the pages of The Columbia News and The Martinez-Evans Times, Wednesday, Aug. 24, 1977:
Evans coaches prepare
"Everybody's bigger than us, and everybody's faster than us," is the way Evans football coach Jim Connor summed up the opposition the Knights will face during the coming football season. "But we'll be there."
The Evans starting line has only two players who weigh more than 200 pounds, head coach Billy Beale noted. And Beale has only 14 lettermen returning on his 45-man roster. "We'll be aggressive," he promised.
The offensive team will have three returning starters: Gary Dobos, Tim Cotton and Butch Boyd. Defensive backs on the first squad will be Darryl Hoyt, Walter Taylor, Bart Chandler and Roger Gray. Other leads are yet to be decided.
Scout troop chartered
A charter presentation was given for Boy Scout Troop 66 last week.
Begun in May this year with eight members, Troop 66 has increased its membership to 16.
The Martinez troop, sponsored by Our Savior Episcopal Church, received its charter Aug. 23 during a brief ceremony held at the church. District Commissioner Taylor Powell officiated and presented the charter.
