Fan Memories:

Razorback fans share their memories of former Hog greats. Send us an email and include your name if you want it listed. Or it can be anonymous.

In 1962 you were introduced to Bald Knob High by Supt. Herman Lubker. We were told told you were one of the best RAZORBACK PLAYERS. So all of us country boys were scared to death. But you molded us into a great team. Harold it's been 50 years of memories that will never be forgotten. God gave me a son late in life that some day I hope to get him to a razorback game where he can experience the thrill. Tim don’t try to fill dads shoes just pick them up and run off with them. Thanks miss  BETTY FOR STANDING WITH HAROLD ALL THESE YEARS. GOD BLESS YOU AND THANKS FROM ALL YOUR PLAYERS.
