Souvenirs Tell Stories — Part 12: My Old Football Jacket

Photo by Jim LaBate

I was cleaning out the attic recently, and I discovered my old, high-school football jacket from over 50 years ago. Why do I still have this jacket? I haven’t actually worn it since 1969. Honestly, I still have it because I can’t bear to throw it away. Too many memories. Too many stories. When it comes to high-school memorabilia, I am a bit of a hoarder. Just ask my wife.
