My congratulations to Brendan Egan for receiving a scholarship to attend the University of Maine at Orono. I was a member of the University of Maine Class of 1961. I am certain he will enjoy the University as much as I did.
I did not play football while attending Warwick Valley High School but I was offered an opportunity to play for the Black Bears. While being Captain and playing flag football on an intramural team, I was approached by team scouts.
Due to my concern about getting good grades in my classes, I declined the offer. During my years at Maine I continued my playing of football and volleyball for my Fraternity.
