By creating many student-driven organizations and activities, the principal empowered the student body and faculty to embrace a dynamic spirit of the soul. Removing all obstacles, including the football team, basketball became the centerpiece for the school and community.
Through almost 70 years, basketball at Lyman Hall High School in Wallingford, Connecticut, was sacrosanct, leading to countless wins and championships.
Amid the deleterious events regarding football over seven decades, the most improbable and, indeed, the most impossible of moments came in the form of a miracle, the 1985 state football championship for Lyman Hall High School. “Before the Picture Fades” is the story of the events that resulted in that miracle. Nary, a rah-rah sports piece with exciting moments and colorful characters, this book examines circumstances and consequences that often face public secondary schools.
Whether you shake your head, laugh, or cheer loudly, “Before the Picture Fades” will swing the door of your heart wide open with endless exultation.
