Before I was a twinkle in my dad’s eye, he was a football star! His brief career was highlighted by a controversial touchdown in the 1949 New Year’s Ice Bowl, played in Fairbanks, Alaska. After graduating from a one-room school house in Kelton, Texas, he enlisted in the Air Force. He quarterbacked his mukluk wearing team on a coal-marked, snow covered field in -25 degree temperature. Mark Bolding has archived the story here: Ice Bowl 1949. The pictures, program and newspaper articles were lovingly kept by my Grandma Janie. When I offered them to Mark, he was thrilled. It appears there is little documented history of this game. The insert at the bottom is from my scrapbook. Thank you Mark.
