Alumnus Sportscaster & Writer Clayton '59 to Speak at Hoosac November 10th
rgrant

This Friday, November 10th, Skip Clayton '59 will be returning to Hoosac where he will serve as the Friday Night Speaker following dinner. Mr. Clayton, who is an accomplished Philadelphia sportscaster and author, recently published his fifth book titled "So You Think You're a Philadelphia Eagles Fan? Stars, Stats, Records and Memories for True Diehards".


One of Hoosac's most famous alumni, Clayton has a diverse and rich history in broadcasting. He covered sports for the ABC Radio Network for close to 40 years. Clayton got his first job in radio in 1962 as a copy boy, working for WRCV who was owned by NBC. He later went on to become the Sports Director at WRCP until January of 1977. Below is picture of his Press Box Pass for the Flyers.


For 14 years, he was the Associate Publisher of the Phillies Report, a freelance paper. The paper was devoted strictly to Phillies baseball. Harry Kalas even gave him the nickname Memory Lane because of his knowledge of Phillies baseball!

Like many of our current students, Skip was very active in the Hoosac Community. For starters, he was the team manager of the varsity soccer team. In 1957, Clayton helped lead Hoosac basketball to their third straight Taconic Conference Championship and was selected to the All-Star team. He also coached the JV basketball team until 1959.

Skip played baseball from 1957 until 1959, and started at first base all three seasons. Most impressively, Skip was a Player/Coach for the 1959 team which also went on to win the Taconic Conference Championship (he is pictured below batting against Venderhayden in 1959). He was a track star as well. Perhaps his greatest accomplishment, however, was being named Senior Prefect for the 1958-59 school year.


Some of his favorite moments in sports include when the 1950's Phillies, who were known as the Whiz Kids, won the pennant, the Eagles 1960 Super Bowl victory, and the Philadelphia Warriors 1956 NBA Finals run. Skip Clayton truly went from sitting in the stands to sitting in the press box.

There will be a reception in Tibbits Hall at 5:00pm on Friday night. All who know Skip, or would like to meet him are more than welcome to attend. See you there!

A Haunted Hoosac Halloween
rgrant

Out of the many holidays and traditions celebrated at Hoosac School, perhaps the most extravagant continues to be Halloween. Each year, our students celebrate in numerous ways. A staple of Halloween at Hoosac is pumpkin carving, as pictured above.


You can't celebrate Halloween without a costume party! There were many impressive outfits and a great playlist of music head-manned by DJ Tyler Grill '17. However, arguably the most exciting part of the night came after the party.


The residents of Tibbits Mansion led by Miss Lindsay, Miss Purvis, and Miss Grachova orchestrated an amazing haunted house which can never be duplicated... so scary that even Mr. Robichaud screamed in terror! The enthusiasm on campus is contagious and we cannot wait to see what the rest of the school year has in store for us!
