About Me

Ray Pelfrey is my cousin on my dad's side, his mother and my dad were brother and sister.

In the early 1950's we watched on TV  as Ray played for the Greenbay Packers. His record indicates a great year haing 37 receptions. He was traded the next year to the Dallas Cowboys as Frank Gifford came to play for Greenbay. I was talking with Ray at his dad's funeral in 1965  (my uncle Robert winner of the "Silver Star" in WWI) and Ray told me this story. While attendsing Portsmouth High (Ohio) he tried to go out for football but the coach would have none of it because Ray had not yet sprouted up. But Ray as he told me hung around the field and while the guys were in a huddle he would grab the football and take off with it while the coach was yelling "get that kid and bring that football back here". It was only then that they got a glimpse of what was to come...No one could catch him.   Later on in life I was working at my last job part time maintanence at Newport High School, Newport Kentucky when I got a real look into Ray's high school days of football. We had an older man that worked there and during a conversation with him he related to me that he went to Portsmouth high during WWII and knew Ray very well and even still had his "Year books from Portsmouth" I asked him if he could bring it to work sometime and he did. Ray's picturesa and football exploits carried the whole story of all that he did and it was a great story of him scoring 2-3-4 touchdowns in almost every game. It was awsome to look at and to read. I have not spoken with Ray in years but I wish him well. Rays younger brother Charles Franklin Pelfret (my buddy) died last summer may he rest in Peace.
