 Homecoming is October 12, 2012 at Ray Schultz field. Lets display our pride and commitment to Manual by showing up and encouraging our friends to join us. A big crowd will bolster student spirit.

Manual's 50th birthday was celebrated at Delavan Smith Field Oct 20, 1944. My sister Carol Durnil Ayres is to big #50's right. Wilma Durrett is behind Carol.

The jerseys worn by the 1942 Manual team on the left look to be the same ones our 1950 freshman team wore in 1950. I remember them being wooly and itchy.

 Above: Jack Miller (1953) was a stalwart lineman for the Manual Redskins in 1951 and 1952, and an all-around good guy. His widow, Nancy Harvey Miller (1954), contributed to the Manual Football fund in Memory of Jack.
