School Story

After high school I went to University of Dayton graduating in 1968.
Best Story ," the journey of or basketball team beating beating the number # 1 state rated Chicago Crane High School in over-time at Northwestern's McGraw Statium to go downstate".

Best football story :
was me having a conversation with coach Murney Lazier which in my junior year coach Lazier Walked pass me in the hallway without speaking which caused me some concern ;so I confronted Coach Lazier as to why he didn't greet me in the hallway? He said Rommie,"I don't care if you like me , I want you to respect me"
HOWEVER, AS A RESULT OF THAT CONVERSATION HE ALWAYS WITHOUT FAIL GREETED ME IN HALLWAYS !!
