VIDEO: Tanners' Football of Old

Vintage football footage from four decades ago.

Here's a walk down memory lane for any Peabody football fan. This video, which was recently posted on YouTube, shows the Tanners on the gridiron in 1969. They were the Class A state champs that year.

This was also one of two unbeaten seasons racked up by the Tanners under the guidance of one of Peabody High's legendary coaches. Do you know who that is? He coached football for 21 years.

These guys must be pretty embarassed of the so-called "football teams" Peabody High has been producing lately....with all of these blowouts and losing seasons it really is kind of pathetic!

The coach sure was Adamoupoulos......nicknamed... chaffee. We had some super teams back in 69 and 70. Those teams were together since junior high school... Kennedy Jr.High under coach Andy Thain, who was a police officer back then. I know, I was the QB of the team....Steve DeSisto And yes Derek.....they should be embarrassed for the last few years.
