To the Editor:

Congratulations to the Grant Union football team for beatingVale High School recently, 12 to 7. I graduated from GUHS in 1977 and was on the last Prospector football team to beat the Vikings. As the late, great coach Vince Lombardi put it, "I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle victorious."

That's certainly the way I felt 30-plus years ago. I'm sure the current Prospectors felt the same way.

Congratulations and keep up the great work!
