Former Patch Kid, 1945-1950

Lloyd Redman was my father figure at the patch. He introduced me to the game of football. Football was my key to escape the Myrtle Street neighborhood. Football got me to Male High School and another prominent man in my life—Coach Nick Denes. Success at Male led to a football scholarship at Western Kentucky University. I left Western as a 2nd lieutenant in the Army. I served 3 years and returned to football as a teacher-coach at Shawnee High School. Enjoyed a 30-year career in education. There is no way that I would have enjoyed my level of success had it not been for my "membership" in the patch.

I thank you for the protection and guidance from of a Cabbage Patch membership. My best wishes for your continued success in the pursuit of your mission.
