I remember a few games when Gary "Bucket" Taylor would get into it. I know he had a broken shoulder defending Northern Bedford once.

It was even better when the crowd would start the yell: Bucket Taylor Clap clap clapclapclap. sing it with me if u know the words.

The Greatest NB fan was the old guy with no teeth who would harass you to no end up at Replogle during baseball. He had a daughter when he was 60 and she came to the games. She was at least 6'4". I can't remember his name now. I am sure the NB faithful can remind me.

He was a dedicated man!!!

Names that come to mind for me as for greatest fans:

BEDFORD: The late great Floyd Harris and the two guys that go to all Bedford games...On non-Bedford nights you would see any of the aforementioned at another county game somewhere.

EVERETT: Paul and LaDonna Plovish...Quiet, you don't notice them, but at nearly every Everett Warrior Home and Away Boys and Girls Game for years. Dick England (In his day) and the late Pee Wee Conner and Randy Clark used to be a tag-team at Boys games ... yelled at me one night going in at halftime to get my teams head out of their a$$ and cover the dang pointspread!!!

NBC: Earl "the Pearl" Eshelman...once sprinted across midcourt at UPJ to correct the clock operator in the district finals....not only did he successfully get the error corrected, he didn't get kicked out. Others: Harry Dodson, Harold Crawford, the late Donnie and late Bob Batzel, Mark Sherlock, and Kerry "Rounder" Brown are other loyal followers both present and past.

TUSSEY MT: The twins that keep the sticks in football...they never miss a Tussey event. The old guy that sits behind Bailey in the top row that always greets the opposing teams and coaches with obscenities. Reed...can't recall first name....He kept the book for a couple years, Tim Reed's dad.

Floyd Harris was tops, would be seen at any County event if Bedford travelled far away. Class act!

Who can forget the twins from tussey!

Bedrock...."the greatest NB fan was the old guy with no teeth....."That describes about half of the fans that attend NBC sporting events.

I have to agree with some on this website. Floyd Harris was definately one of the best fans, whether you played for Bedford or not. He was at every Bedford game (boys and girls). Great guy, loved to talk about his grandchildren!
