Port Byron Reds

Sports history certainly is a bit of a stretch for me but while researching our school mascot I found a couple articles about the Port Byron Reds.  This was a name unfamiliar to me:

Port Byron Chronicle 1951-1952

The team formed around 1951 and headed by Andy Sorendo.  It was considered a County team and had an impressive opening season.

Auburn Citizen 1953
