Many things pop into my mind when I think back on our high school years and the football seasons. As I recall, football in Delta was kind of a 50/50 proposition before coach Stimack arrived. His first year was about the same as previous coaches, but the next year, things began to change. We went something like 9-0, finally losing to Montrose in the final league game of the season. The next year we went 11-0 and won the state championship. Our senior year we had another good football team, placing second in state with an 8-3 record.

I was talking to Ralph Mangum via email and asked if he by chance, had newspaper clippings from DHS football. He relayed that his mother had put together some scrapbooks, documenting Ralph's high school football years and offered to send the "Senior Year" scrapbook to me for use on this site. Of course I took Ralph up on that offer, and what you will see below comes from that scrapbook. My intent is to document the entire season, starting with the first game and ending with the last, adding a game a week to this site. I hope you enjoy reading these articles as much as I have.
