Frank Gifford...Once a Driller, Always a Driller

Monday, November 12

Pin It



For the second time in as many weeks ... I've been able to "hob-nob"
(don't you like that term...say it 3 times fast)
with some pretty outstanding athletes and stellar human beings.

Oh ... and one more important accolade ...
BAKERSFIELD HIGH SCHOOL DRILLER GREATS!

Last week I was hanging out with our latest 

This week I was thrilled to finally get to meet perhaps
Bakersfield High School's Most Decorated Athlete ...
Frank Gifford.




Frank Gifford ...
 BHS Class of 1948 ... 
USC Alumni and All American ...
and Hall of Fame Pro Football Player ...
including 8 Trips to the Pro Bowl.

That's just to give a brief recap.  His resume could take more
elbow grease and time than this small blogger could muster.

Oh ... and most of you may remember ...
Announcer on Monday Night Football.



Frank ... excuse me sir ... Mr. Gifford took time early in the day to meet up 
with some fellow Class of '48  Drillers.


Following our "meet and greet" it was on to the actual reason for his visit ...
induction on to the ...

Allstate Pro Football Hall of Fame
 All-Time Team!

In other words ... boys and girls ... 
he's one of the greatest football players  ...   EVER!



I'm sure he'd be quick to add another of his great achievements would be 
these two ...
Cassidy & Cody Gifford.

I had a wonderful time talking to these two young adults.  I thought it was so special
they would accompany their dad back to his home town.
Cody Gifford is currently finishing up his term at USC and his sister ...
Cassidy ... will be starting there next semester.

Not only are they gorgeous kids ... they are the most charming and down-to-earth kids 
you'd ever want to meet.  Coming from such a famous family ...
and by the way ... mom is Kathie Lee Gifford ... you'd swear they were the kids down the street.

I know I'm suppose to be talking about  Frank Gifford ... but ... as a parent myself ...
you never can hear too many nice things about your kids.

Anyhoo ... I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with the all the Giffords ...
and appreciate the time they took to come back to Bakersfield and their roots.

As always ...

Once a Driller ... Always a Driller.
