Yearbook Finds - My Dad was on the JV Football Team in High School

It's football season here in the United States. As I'm typing this, I'm looking forward to watching two upcoming college football games on TV with my husband. When I was a kid, I would sometimes sit in front of the TV and watch football with my dad, Jan Albert Iverson.

While looking through the yearbook collection on Ancestry.com, I found this really fun photo that shows my dad as a member of the Junior Varsity Football team at his high school. My dad attended Benson Polytechnic High School in Portland, Oregon. This photo was from the 1953 Benson Polytechnic High School yearbook.

My dad was a member of the JV Football team during his sophomore year. Included with his senior picture in the 1955 Benson High School yearbook was information about activities and sports my dad was involved in during high school. With that information, I browsed through different years in the Benson Polytechnic High School yearbooks online at Ancestry.com and found this awesome photo. The red arrow is pointing to my dad.


Here's a close-up of my dad. It's fun seeing him in his football uniform during high school.


I'll be posting more fun yearbook finds in future posts.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Pretty cool! I was looking at all the yearbooks, too. I am not sure why because I already have copies that my family of book hoarders saved.
