If you happen to remember the way things were in Miami-Dade County back in the 1960s, you certainly appreciate how different events such as the Vietnam War and The Civil Rights Movement shaped the lives of so many.
If you also followed sports during that time in Miami, there were so many high school coaches who made a lasting impact on the young men they taught and coached. There were many life lessons learned.
At Coral Park Senior High, the 1960s were very special in all sports with coaches such as Frank Downing and Red Berry teaching football and baseball the right way, and some 43 years later, those very students are remembering the special times with a reunion.
On Friday, Aug. 7, Coral Park Senior High will honor athletes who made the 1960s such a special time with a 7:00 event at Tobacco Road, 626 S Miami Ave., Miami. 33130-3016.
If you would like to be a part of this impressive reunion and attend the event, contact Coach Downing (410-745-5278), Coach Berry (305-279-2668) or Joel Furnari at (305-776-4138).
