Planning to fail

The thrill of victory; the agony of defeat.

Unfortunately, the recent action taken by the Leechburg School Board has taken away the first part of this adage from the Leechburg teams of the future. More unfortunately, the second part will indeed be assured.

Evidently, the people in favor of remaining in the WPIAL have never played on a winning team.

I was a member of the Leechburg football teams of 1949, 1950 and 1951, whose three-year record was 27–2. We knew the thrill of victory and enjoyed the overwhelming turnout of students who wanted to be a part of a winning team.

The biggest difference between 1950 and now? An even field of opponents.

Our teams must get on a level playing field with their opponents or they will never feel the thrill of victory.
