Roland and Ronald Woodfolk

Jefferson Elementary, Venable Elementary, Burley High School, Lane High School

RONALD W: Well he was mostly a father figure to some of the guys, which I really didn’t know, cause I really, I came, when I went to practice, I did what I had to do, and when practice was over, I left.  There was no hanging around with the other team members and so forth, you just, I left.

ROLAND W: It’s like a job, you go do your job, and you go home.  We had fun while we did it.

PHYLLIS LEFFLER:  Do you think some of the other kids hung around and socialized more, or do you just not know?

RONALD W: They probably did.  There was only four blacks on the team.
