Frieda Pickett contacted me and asked to place my memory of Coach Mayfield in her book GROWING UP IN BORGER. Here is the Table of Contents. Just reading through it brings up many memories. If something listed jogs your memory, share it with others by making comments. I could write a book on Mrs. Smock and her class. Purple memories!!!
