Was just telling Ken Ormsby today about how you told me about the open position on the B&B dept at the C&NW RR working for Hank Tapaninen. Thanks again George, that was the best summer job I had before finishing college. No doubt you're fishing today. Shit man if not already you'll soon be sprouting gills! HB, Kingfish

I was lucky enough to attend Coach Mack's service last Saturday in CL. Each of his sons spoke well of their father and what it was like to grow up in a household with such an intense Coach. There were many stories to be told and much laughter. There was well over one hundred in attendance with many who played for him.

My memories of him include that at the end of our junior year several of us went to him as our Assistant Principal and practcally begged him to be our Coach for the fall of 67 football season. His reputation followed him from his success at Cary-Grove. To our disapointment he explained that as an Administrator he could not coach.......

During the week of Homecoming 67 Coach Mack put out a request to memebers of the Varsity Club to help collect firewood around town for the Bonfire .He pulled several of us out of study hall and lunch to pick up donations of all kinds of wood. Once that task was done he said lets all go to his house for lunch! Mrs Mack had prepared sandwiches and pumpkin bread. i was really touched with the hospitality of the Mack's and never having had pumpkin bread I had to have the recipe! Still have it today on a 3x5 card as it became a favorite in our house. Brought it with me Saturday. Shared it with Mrs Mack.

My only regret...never having had the opportunity to play for him.  Listening to all the the stories told of him was inspirational. My own coaching experiece may have been different had I had that opportunity. RIP Bill Mack.

Can't forget his Tiger team did beat BARRINGTON in 1974    24-20  !
