The Drummonds: Milford’s Father-Son State Champions

Status fields – A moment of glory in the gymnasium of Milford … I discovered what I did not know and I was able to take the picture. Thomas Drummond, who fought for Roy Rigby, was a state champion at 119 pounds in 1984. Chris Drummond, an assistant wrestling coach at Milford, was the 2007 and 2008 State Champion at 215 pounds and also the Gatorade lineman of the year in high school. I asked Chris how he had skipped so many weight classes in a generation and he said, “Grandma cooks.

Lady Land Lunch – A lunch lady who identified with Milford drove alone on a cold and dark Wednesday night from her home in Greenwood because some of the boys asked her to come to the Senior Night wrestling match against Sussex Central. I know how schools work and I knew straight away that the lunch lady was a high school impact player. She sat in the front row during JV matches and I asked to take a picture of her, but she was adamant, “No,” as I am if someone says, “Would you like to dance?” And so I stepped back, but with a lot of respect, because if the athletes have asked for her to appear, it is because they adore the lady at lunch, the captain of a toilet block in the middle of the day. school.

Signature photos – A few mornings ago, instead of taking pictures of someone signing up for college sport, I took pictures of real signs. There are now six state championship girls track signs along the inside fence below the scoreboard at Legends Stadium representing the six titles won by the retired coach Georges Poivre. And before anyone asks, the boys have won 14 state track titles, including three for indoor track and five more for cross country. There are also signs for seven titles won by men’s lacrosse, which is played inside Legends Stadium. Let’s go get the sports director Bob cilento busy retired clamping panels on chain link fences. In addition, they offer some protection from the annoying winds off the bay.

Captain Lizzie – Little girl Lizzie fred has just been elected captain of the Temple 2020 women’s lacrosse team. Lizzie is an academic / athletic scholarship senior. She will graduate this spring in speech therapy, then she will pursue graduate studies. I said to him, “Wait a minute, you’re just a kid on Anna B Street along the Forgotten Mile; later, you are the captain of a lacrosse team at a large college on Broad Street. So many Sesame Street by the Sea student-athletes are stepping out and succeeding in a bigger but not better world.

Your story from my point of view – I congratulated the Cap de Collin Mallet, Kris Rushin and Kay’von jackson for having lived a moment of madness and played 12 minutes of three-way basketball in front of a delirious crowd. We sat at a cafeteria table, and neither of them smiled or showed any satisfaction. The story I wanted was not the one I got. “The game should have been stopped and we should have won,” said Mallet. “We wanted that dub,” Jackson said. Rushin, who has been slamming since becoming the go-to guy, said: “This game should have been postponed and started over from the start.” I also told them, “The chemistry and teamwork that I saw in your surprise victory at Polytech was the best I have seen all season. They also didn’t chase that bullet I threw, maybe because this story isn’t true, or more likely, because it is.

Pin cushions – Comment anything you want about girls fighting boys but i just know if you walk the mat you have a chance to get hit. January 29 in Milford, Jack Thode and Trent Grant won in the fall, just like their sisters. Emilie Thode got a college pin at 106, while Brooklyn Stock Exchange won with a 20 second throw in the JV match. The wrestler who lost to Brooklyn, a fit kid, ran off the mat down the hall. Emily was then interviewed by Benny [Mitchell] and the Jets on 302 Sports, and later the game was broadcast on WBOC. I try to imagine what it would have been like to be pinned down by a girl in my weight class in front of a packed house when I was in high school. Then see it on TV. “Wrestling taught me to be a man by getting pinned down by women.” I could learn the humility from that, but seeing it on TV, I would probably start swearing and ask my mom to say, “You better watch your language unless you want to take your second loss from the night “.

Super Bowl – I’m going to sit down and watch the game without being distracted by all the power games where I haven’t made the cut. I pay absolutely no attention to the hype or pre-game analysis. Gamers don’t know where to go beyond payday loans. I love the Chiefs, but I think the Niners are a more complete football team. I lost a good friend last week with the passing of Drew ostroski at the age of 52. I was his first mentor in everyday journalism and comedy. One day in class in 1985, I heard an echo coming from the back of the room. It was Drew making his impression of Fredman. It was so good that I was about to go to therapy. Forget the nerd wallet; Drew coined the term “browned” to describe a new haircut from Mel’s barber shop. And there are muppets walking around Sesame Street by the Sea without knowing their nicknames created and conferred by Drew. My favorite is Carrier Dome. I can hear myself laughing. It must be Drew. Go now, damn it, good mate!
