Race

LFA Stewart 1961071

This is the Most Valuable Player Soccer Goalie 1962 at Lake Forest Academy.  I showed up for work over 4 years of playing the game.  This photo has little to do with the other story…Race…a film about Jesse Owens just released.  The Academy was a prison to many boys but a privilege for me…I loved it.  I showed up for Track for the same four years throwing the discus and then running for the showers.  Mr. Wetzel, the coach, gave me a Letter that final year for being there.  The privilege was that Jesse Owens gave them to all of us who lettered that year.
