‘Out of the Box’ with Dallas Huston: Bluebonnet Relays
I’m not the greatest track and field man who has ever existed, but I do have a couple, well maybe three, highlights – actually two highlights and one low light since I first attended the Bluebonnet Relays. I don’t remember the first year because that’s how big a fan I was, but probably the first vivid memory I have is back in the mid-sixties, and at that time Brownwood hosted the meet and they would normally invite at least seven big schools to come in and compete. Old Lions Stadium at that time was just a dirt track but we would always get some pretty good competition.
