Description

About the book (by the author):

This book presents 435 total pages of fascinating and inspiring stories and features as well as photos, game summaries, facts, and statistics covering over 120 years of Hutchinson High School football.

I hope this book fulfills my purpose to showcase and properly preserve Hutchinson’s football history. One unforeseen outcome of researching and writing this book has been the uncovering and rebirth of the first 50 to 60 years of the program’s history that, for the most part, had been buried so deep in the archives that it was impossible for us to know and appreciate them. Now, more recent generations have an opportunity to learn about those teams, players, and coaches who blazed a trail for the modern era of Hutchinson football. Hopefully, once-famous Hutchinson players such as Solomon “Sol” Butler, Johnny Armstrong, Vere “Whiskey” Lowe, Ellis Ellsworth, Norman Neighbors, Emerson Carey, William Carey, Orville Harper, Jack Parker, Harold Nevius, George Gear, Charlie Bernard, John Calvin, and many others will come to life again in the minds of the readers.

Many of the young men who have worn the Blue and Gold have become good citizens, husbands, fathers, and pillars of their communities. Some have had the good fortune to see their sons follow in their footsteps on the football field. In some instances, several generations in the same family have experienced what it is to be a proud Salthawk. I hope that this book will enhance and preserve some of that pride as we tie the past to the present.

    This book is a MUST PURCHASE for anyone connected to Salthawk Football – players, coaches, managers, fans, relatives, and anyone who ever lived in, or near, Hutchinson, KS, from 1902 to 2016.

    Steve Miller did a remarkable job researching, compiling, and presenting history, stories, and photos.

    The day the book arrived, I thought I would set it on the shelf and occasionally refer to it. Once I opened it and started reading the fascinating accounts, I became so engaged in it that I could not resist studying each and every page!

    Thank you for dedicating years of skill and effort to this worthy endeavor, Coach Miller!

  2. 5 out of 5

    After countless hours of research, interviews, observations, and sleuthing, Steve Miller has complied a gem of a product that will interest anyone that has had even a minute brush with Salthawk football. Honestly, this book is a wealth of information laid out in a manner that even a shirt-tail HHS fan can appreciate. Thank you Mr Miller, as well as his in-house editor, for seeing such a monumental project to its completion, thus enabling so many to re-live those good old days.
