Lane High School

Well, we were segregated, you know, of course...  I think basically there was Burley and there was Charlottesville, and the two schools really — I mean, we didn’t play against each other or anything like that, but I think we got along fine.  I think the players knew each other, and so on.  They got along fine, and wasn’t any problems there.  But then, when we integrated, wasn’t any problem at all, because they blend in right together, because the main thing, they all wanted to win football games and that was the bottom line.  Integration, you know, far as they were concerned didn’t even exist.
