COAL GROVE — It’s almost game time once again for one of Dawson-Bryant High School’s most distinguished alumnus.

Jerry Fields will be the featured guest on Saturday as the Dawson-Bryant Distinguished Alumni Event will be held in the high school cafeteria beginning at 6 p.m.

Several activities are scheduled including some game footage of Fields’ high school and college playing days. Included in the event will be guest speakers plus refreshments and a variety of assorted finger pastries.

There is no charge for the event.

One of the best athletes ever produced by Lawrence County, Fields was an all-county player in 1953, a member of the first Ohio Valley Conference championship team in 1954, All-OVC and All-Ohio in 1954-55 and a North/South All-Star Game selection in 1955.

Fields went on to start for Ohio State and play professionally in the AFL and CFL.
