Each Monday, the Centre Daily Times will publish an installment in our “Share our Heritage” series, featuring photos from Centre County’s past.

Today’s photo is from Carol A. McKeever, State College High School Class of 1960.

They were coached by Homer Barr. Brothers Dick, wrestling at 127 pounds, and Gene Tressler, wrestling at 133 pounds, were both PIAA state champions in 1959.
