When WWII ended however it was decided to revive football, and Bob Boozer was hired as the coach. The first season was that of 1947. It takes time to grow a team, but in the fall of 1957 Brockport had its first winning football season, with a tally of 4-2-1. Shown here is halfback Bob Berg '58, who played on that winning team.
In 1987 Mike Andriatch, who was Sports Information Director then, organized a reunion of that team of '57.

In preparing a slide show about African American history at the college for an upcoming Black Student Liberation Front & OSAD reunion, the archives yielded a number of images of African American students. The reunion planners were interested to hear the depth of the African American experience at Brockport, as evidenced by students like Robert Bray, Class of 1937.
