    Related to Wichita, Jim Ryun and Archie San Romani jr, both went to Wichita East. As pointed out during their attendance , there were at least 5 public high schools in Wichita. I believe Bill Nieder went to high school in Lawrence and also played football for them.

      I would argue that Larry James is the wrong answer; he's not as significant as Craig Masback.

        Good one! Correct for 8 points.

        No extra points offered, but what was her last name from her days at Gig Harbor?
        She's from good Scandaroovian (I think?) stock and went by the name Doris Severtson.
        Most likely Scandinavian as her name was Severtsen. But I screwed up the high school, which was Peninsula HS in Gig Harbor, not GHHS.

          Bear River: has to be L. Jay Silvester
          Correct on all three, for 36 points!

            One correct: Sikeston (Mo) was where George Woods went to school. 14 points.

              Significant in the broader t&f sense, yes, but not strictly as an athlete.

                I knew he meant James, and we established earlier that reading dj's mind was part of the game. :-)

                            Yes! (And why Charlie Mays was not the answer for this high school )

                            17 points, and back to the lead with a total of 53.

                              Tapping into lonewolf's exceptional memory bank, is Wichita's Olympic decathlete Jim Bausch (sp?)?

                                Wichita High--Jim Bausch! Yes, that's right. 18 points and 71 total. Not enough to clinch, but pretty solid. (Unless you want to give lonewolf half the points!)
