In honor of the Rensselaer Central High School football team’s thrashing of North Newton Friday, here is a group of players of the current Bombers can look up to. This group of mostly Rensselaer High School graduates played in a semi-pro football league in Chicago around 1969. They include (front, L to R) Wayne Tilton (Class of 1962), Dave Staddon (Class of ‘620, the late Joe Burvan, who taught and coached football and wrestling at RCHS), and Terry Davisson (Class of ’61). (Back L to R) Duffy Hagist, Joe Zimmer (class of ’62), Chris Geesman (former RCHS football coach), and Chuck Tilton (Class of ’56). Photo provided. Rensselaer Republican 8/25/03
