I remember going to Mansion Park for the football games and the bonfires they had. We walked one night from Fairview to Mansion Park and back, and it was COLD!! What fun!

I can't agree with you more. Like I said in my profile, nothing beats Altoona High Football. My family and I traveled up to Mansion Park the last couple of years when my daughter's high school played Altoona. What memories. We then went to the Altoona Hotel for pizza afterwards. The pizza is still the same.

The finest "hour" was always AAHS football; no doubt about it. The best memories during my years at AAHS. Fun, food, friends, cool crisp nights and usually a victory!!! No, there was nothing better in those days!!! Remember when Mike Reid played? Now, thoses were the teams!!! I also rememember a long bus trip to Gateway High in Pittsburgh and sitting during sleet and snow in that play off game (we will not talk about the end result...LOL)

I remember the feeling I’d get when the band would start the cadence just before coming through the tunnel onto the field pre-game – I still get goose bumps every time I hear one. I may have been a Buckeye for the last 39 years, but AAHS had the “best damn band in the land”. Sorry OSU.

Now settle down, cowboy. I don't recall the word "fan" being attached to that Buckeye word. LOL!

spent the last 40 years getting splinters out of my arse from sitting on the bench at Mansion Park. Looking back, those were some of the greatest days of my life, surrounded by a bunch of great team members and wonderful coaches. Although I still ache from Jim Gardner's crabbing, Ron Rickens, Earl Strohm and the rest of the posse were great role models.
