Remember When? The 1963 Ponoka High School Broncs football team was a powerhouse in the Central Alberta High School Football League. The team went on to win many championships. During their 55th Class Reunion on Sept. 21st at the Ponoka Legion these former team members were thrilled to be able to poise for a photo. They got to chat and reminisce with their former coach and teacher Jim Day. Shown in the back row from left to right are: Dick Groom, Garry Humphreys, Gord Jones, Coach Jim Day, Ron McDowell, Ken Pohl, and Louis Peterson; and then seated in the front row are: Tom Doran, Stan Lux, Ed Andrychuk, Richard (Dick) Osokin, and Gerry Field….and the longstanding and proud tradition of sports continues to this day.
