Anyone graduate from Bloomington High School (the original one) in the late 1960's?
Right town--but wrong high school. I was in the last class of University High School (1972.)
Maybe I can help?
I attended the original Bloomington High School in the 8th grade. That would have been 63-64. I played on the 8th grade football team and we had a really good player named Mike (or Michael) Driver (sp?). I have always been curious as to his future in sports.
That's a bit before my time, and the name does not ring a bell--sorry.
Bloomington HS was a state dynasty in both wrestling (Kay Hutsell) and Football (Tom Sells) in that era. We played against QB Dobby Grossman in '71... they were ranked #2 in the State. My senior year we played them and they were ranked #1. They beat us on their field 42-7. I recovered a fumble in that final game... we played in the snow. IIRC they beat Martinsville 84-0 that year. The "Artesians" will forever hate the "Panthers."
I was born here... and you certainly would NOT recognize Bloomington or IU today. The growth has been astounding.--Tim
