Water Crew late getting to Linfield at Whitworth football game 10/22/2016

The Water Crew (John S, John O, Bill, Eric) was about 20 minutes late on 10/22/2016 getting to Whitworth’s Pine Bowl in Spokane (for Linfield at Whitworth football game) due to an auto accident which occurred ahead of them and their vehicle on I-90. Traffic was stopped on the highway. While sitting in the vehicle in stopped traffic, John S. sent a text reading, "There is an accident about 1/2 mile ahead of us. We are stopped cold."

--During the game, in this photo provided by Wildcatville, Bill Harland watched action from Linfield sideline.

--Crew members drove from McMinnville to Spokane and back to attend/work the Linfield at Whitworth football game on 10/22/201. That’s about 790 miles round-trip. The Crew stopped on 10/23/2016 (Spokane to McMinnville) and John S took this photo of (l-r) Eric, Bill and John O. John S titled it, “Bringing home the win from Whitworth.”

Happy Birthday! Coach Durham

Oct. 18 is the birthday of Paul Durham, Linfield football coach 1948-1967, long-time athletic director and faculty member. He’s considered the “Father of Linfield Athletics.”

Born in 1913 in Portland, Ore., he died June 22, 2007, at age 93 in Honolulu. After leaving Linfield in 1968, he moved to Hawaii to become director of athletics at the University of Hawaii.

A gentle soul with amazing leadership ability and “likeability,” he was the coach who started “The Streak," Linfeld’s national record of consecutive winning football seasons.

A 1936 Linfield grad, Coach Durham lived on the Mainland 54 years (all in Oregon, 24 years of which were in McMinnville as a student or with Linfield) and in Hawaii 39 years.

Disclaimer: Photos/video taken by Wildcatville on Oct. 5, 2016. Lest you worry, the lei (school colors cardinal and purple with white) flowers are not real. They are silk. No damage was done to the Coach Paul Durham statue/monument located next to the Linfield athletics/p.e. building. Coach Durham statue wore the lei momentarily. Now, the lei is ready for next birthday!

Mahalo to lei stylist Anna O'Sullivan Bowman, Linfield Class of 1982. Born and raised in Kailua, Hawaii, she was always surrounded by beautiful flowers. In 1981, she was a founding member of Phi Sigma Sigma chapter at Linfield. Anna owns/operates Studio Flowers in Clackamas, Ore., 503-910-1375.
