Letters to the Coach: Arlis Parkhurst

8/25/2012

Happy Birthday, Coach

You redirected my life when I reported for the '58 season. Over weight and out of shape. Seeing my name as the fifth team center and your words "I have never had or seen a co-captain that doesn't make the traveling squad!!"  Words etched in my brain for two weeks. The work ethic lasted all my life.

Sincerely,
Arlis B. Parkhurst
