    Hi Marlys,

    Thanks so much for publishing the information I sent on our very first football season. The wife of a cousin we lease the remaining acres of the farm we grew up on called my sister in Eau Claire to tell her of the article and she texted me about it. I did recall after I sent it that the score of the Somerset game was 7-3, not 7-0. I also added that I believe the biggest star athlete in our class, Dave Dummer, who played end, missed that last game with an injury. He was fine for basketball as I believe he averaged 24.1 points a game that season. I also believe Luther Grohn was honorable mention all-conference as a defensive tackle.
