on the field at Loara High School in Anaheim in 1970. Happy birthday, Mr. President.
On October 20, 1970, Ronald Reagan, then governor of California and on a campaign tour, stopped by Loara High School's practice filed to wish the Saxon Football players good luck and to give them his famous, "Win One for the Gipper Speech" (Ronald Reagan played the part of Gipp in the 1940 film Knute Rockne: All American.) Head coach Herb Hill had his picture taken with the future President, caught a few of his football passes and then proceeded to lead the Saxon football team in a cheer for the Governor. The Saxons were victorious in their game that week.
