I played in that Monroe game and I remember it as the hardest-hitting game I was ever in. I was one of the eight players hurt in that game mentioned in the caption on the picture of Coach Bishop and Ricky Rasette. I was tackled returning a punt and hurt my knee. I finally had surgery on it in 1980 to fix it.

If old Bishop had stayed home and let Mike Caskey call the plays, the score might have been different. Caskey was a good coach but Bishop was just "a wanna be."

Mike Caskey, who was my eighth-grade general science teacher, resigned as Hamlet's football coach in February 1965, two seasons before this game was played. He died of cancer in September 1966 a year before this game.

One of the changes in football over the years is that back then, quarterbacks -- not coaches -- called the plays except in rare situations. Both Caskey and Bishop had virtues and shortcomings as coaches, but neither was doing most of the play calling in the games they coached. That was the job of boys on the field.

Oldtimer, I don't know were you received your information on Coach Bishop, but from your comments, you did not know the coach are the great man that Coach Bishop was to many a player on and off the field

I only remember Coach Caskey calling one play while I played for him and that was in'63 against Raeford when we were down 6 to 0 just before halftime 4th down and 8 to go he called timeout came on the field told O'Brain to throw the ball to me in the End zone for a TD
Touchdown it was Robbie Clark kicked the extra point Red Rams 7 Bucks 6 and that was the final score
