Erwin-Lee Field dedication

Former Panther football players and educators pose for a photo during the dedication of a memorial plaque on Sept. 20, 2015 honoring Ruel Erwin and Norman Lee, for whom Navarro's football field is named after.

Alumni and friends of Navarro High School will gather at the school’s stadium Wednesday to remember a tragic day in their small community.

They will commemorate the losses of Ruel Erwin and Norman Lee, who died on the campus in an accident on that date 50 years ago.

Scot Kibbe is a regular contributor to the Seguin Gazette. He has covered Navarro football for 30 years.
