Hello Dan. I recently joined the Verdun Connection group and while browsing in various message boards came upon your name.. We both played on the 1961 Provincial Championship Verdun Steelers Midget Football team in Crawford Park. In fact ,at halftime, in the championship game against St. Laurent you collapsed on top of me in the dressing room because of a back/kidney injury you sustained. I still remember the name of the St. Laurent player that kicked you in the kidney area. (Maxi Habercorn) Luckily Dr. Rae Brown and Alex Duguid were there to assist you immediately. Do you rember that. By the end of the game the field was surrounded by the Verdun police force because they thought there was going to be a riot between the Verdun and St. Laurent fans.The team consisted of Bob Naylor,Gordie Devlin,Gary Cutler,Wally Straps,Danny Muirhead Larry Mehan,Pete St.Amour,Paul Ayotte,Murray O'Hara,Larry Gahan,Paul Tibodeau,Gerry Dugid, Larry Latimer,Malcolm Brown ,Jean Nadeau ,Charlie Dunn.myself (George Edwards) and you. I don't really have that good of a memory. I just recently moved and while unpacking found a 1970 Black & Gold Year Book that contains a bunch of team pictures from different years. I just wanted to say hello after all these years. Are you still in touch with any of the guys?.
