Blurb/ Prologue

Hi my name is Mary Anne Elizabeth Yoast-Budds. This is the story of me and my husband. My husband is Ray Lee Budds. We were high school sweet hearts, and the odd couple, Ray the football stud and I the band geek. When we were growing up only two things you had to know, one was the sport of football, my uncle Bill coached the high school team, and the other was family, I used to watch my cousin Sheryl till she developed a taste for the sport. Our story is one of both the loves of family and football. Our story starts in the summer of 1969, and Ray and I had just finished our sophomore year, and we were going to be juniors at Charles Lawrence High in Alexandria, Virginia.
