The "old guy with no teeth" should probably be in the baseball section, but since it is here I will comment. His last name was Covert and he was probably one of the biggest NB baseball fans if not the biggest. Best impersonation of him goes to former NB player Kirk Stiffler.

One of his favorite stories to tell involved him playing baseball I think at either Broad Top or Hopewell. The way the story goes is that he once hit a ball that went in the smokestack of a passing train. When the train tooted its horn, out popped the baseball which an opposing player caught. He said that he was called out on the play. It was a much more amusing story hearing him tell it.

My favorite memory of him could be when he told me that he was going to castrate me with two stones if I didn't pitch well during a game at Everett. Just glad I pitched well that day.

The late Mr. Harris is definatley a candidate for this , but over here in the Broad Top its the Huffy twins. Ron and Don have been carrying the sticks for football games for years now and are always regulars for basketball and baseball games. Plus you can always see them comin from about 1/2 a mile away because of the bright orange hunting gear one of them usually has on all year long. Go Huffy's!!!!

Mister Harris. A gentleman. Known him away from sports for a number of years. We stilled talked Bedford sports even though I wasn't from Bedford. He loved all athletic events involving all county schools. Never talked of his personal athletic accomplishments, even though after his passing, I found out he had many. A great loss to Bedford County high school sports.

Donnie Batzel at NBC? Jack Skipper at Tussey Mountain? Two names that were overlooked!
