In 1966 this Daily News picture was very important, as the Kiwanis Hawks were to play in Punta Gorda. No other information about the contest is available from the vintage clipping shared by Emolee Barrett of Naples, mother of the player who penciled "me" onto the photo. Barrett says the lads were 9 and 10 years old and comprised "a great deal of the boys who were in Naples at that time." "We were still a wonderful small town then," she writes. The caption from the original Daily News edition gave these names: Front row, left to right, Steve Russell, Jerry Hatcher, James Miller, Rodger Morris, Tommy Barrett, Roy Caple, Bill Longshore, Ted Stevenson, Toby Moreau, Curtis Hamm, Bruce Stevenson and Pete Winters; second row, left to right, Alex Winters, Mike Arthur, Tommy Eggelston, Greg Decker, Cary Howard, James Koliopuplos, Jeff Barber, Randy Gore, Jimmy Traer, Mike Bright, Bill Kilgore and Steve Johnson; back row, left to right, Paul Hazelwood, Albert Fortin, Tim Bell, Jim Decker, Steve Alander, Bruce Griffen, David Barkey, Lance Stahlman, Mark Sentovich, Dennis Hatcher and Walter Green. Their coach was Barry Kee.
These classic photos were published in 2011 in the Sunday Perspective section of the Naples Daily News.
