Mystery 16
To claim a prize for Mystery 16, be the first to email me ( with the names of the players in at least 2 of the 5 photos and the approximate year of the photo. Since all of that info is included in "C", I'll need the year Ish Pilkington was named Collinsville's "Greatest Athlete" by the Tulsa World. -- Ted Wright -- Sunday 6:30pm July 23rd, 2006
The names of these three Collinsvile Cardinal football players are probably more significant to me than most. -- Ted
These two Collinsvile Cardinal football players have attended Nifty Fifties reunions.
One of these Collinsville High School Cardinal football players went on to become a standout player at the University of Tulsa.
One of these 2001 CHS Cards had just scored a touchdown.
This CHS Cardinal is preparing for the 2006 football season.
