As we now have the Los Angeles Rams moving on to campus, it is reminiscent of how Cal Lutheran has had two football tales to talk about from the beginning. The first one is about our visitors. The second is about the home team.
In the very beginning, the visitors were the world champion Dallas Cowboys! How they came to Cal Lu and then stayed for a quarter century is a story in itself!

It began with a visit from Glenn Davis, “Mr. Outside.” In the late 1940's the nation's most powerful collegiate football team was Army. They had two All-American  ball carriers. Doc Blanchard, a bull of a man, was “Mr. Inside.” He could run through  a brick wall. Glenn Davis was “Mr. Outside.”  He didn't run over anybody. He ran around everybody.

In 1961, when his playing days were over, Davis was working for the Los Angeles Times.  The Times was going to sponsor the next season's exhibition opener, the Rams and the Dallas Cowboys. Davis' job was to locate a place where the Cowboys could train for the game. And so he brought head coach Tom Landry and Tex Schramm, the managing director of the Cowboys, to T.O. to see if Cal Lu would  be suitable. Shortly after my collegiate playing years I once "had a cup of coffee with the Chicago Bears" , so Orville Dahl, C.L.C.'s  first President asked me to sit in on the discussions.
 

A RECAP FOR EVERYONE

WHO JUST COULD NOT MAKE IT
and...FOR THOSE WHO DID
Reunions are a way for us all to celebrate our connections and roots. It allows us to honor our elders who we realize have been influential in the lives we've lived. Reunions also allow us to rediscover connections to those individuals we struggled with towards a noble cause, ...and...reunions are fun!

This year 2016 we honored all of the football Captains on all of the Kingsmen teams that we all looked up to and looked to for their leadership and their grit.
 
HERE THEN IS HOW THE
WEEKEND WENT
On Friday night, Bob and Laura Davis again opened up their beautiful home for a BBQ in their back yard. There was no charge and the BBQ food and drinks were outstanding. The weather was perfect and everybody was tuned up for the weekend..
