Check out this awesome video made by some great folks over at Haskell and executive produced by KU Orange Bowl champ Micah Brown. Amazing Lawrence history, amazing football history...

Very cool video. Thanks for posting this!

I've always felt Haskell was the hidden gem of Lawrence.

Great video. The elimination of the Haskell football program and more recently the track and field program breaks my heart. Haskell depended heavily on the Lawrence school district to fund the upkeep of the stadium. When Free State High School was built, scheduling conflicts and turf maintenance became a real issue - with 3 teams playing home games there - and Lawrence school district decided our two high schools needed their own stadiums (which is understandable). The Haskell stadium is falling into disrepair.

When I attended Central Junior High we played a number of our home football games at Haskell as well as our daily track and field practice and track meets. I have a lot of good memories of that place.

What years were you at CJHS? When I attended in the early 90's all games were at the school on the field by the road.
