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.
