In going through the records and documents my mom had, I came across the program for the Tappan Zee H.S. First Annual All Sports Banquet.
The reason it was saved is because my mother’s brother John Post was one of the athletes. This was his junior year. In addition My mother Mrs. Frank Hess and my grandmother Mrs. Charles E. post served on the committee for the banquet.
Two of the Distinguished guests were Phil Rizzuto then shortstop of the New York Yankees and Peter Carlisimo who then coached Football at Scranton University and later let the NIT tournament.
John Post wound up his high school career with 16 varsity letters. This was the most ever earned by any athlete in Tappan Zee High School history . His Senior yearbook lists the following:
Football 1, 2, 3, 4
Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4
Track 2, 3
Bowling 1, 2, 4
Golf 1, 2, 3
