In August 2002, members of the 1960 state championship football team received a letter from Delta High School, inviting them back to a reunion for the 1960 football team. The date for the reunion was set for October 4, 2002 which was to coincide with Delta's annual homecoming game. Below you will find images from that reunion. If your memory is really good, you will see some players from the 1959 team--it was a great team in its own right, and as things worked out, some were able to attend the 1960 reunion--we are all family in one way or the other.
