Searching for 3 Wareham Vikings from the 1950 football team

Sep 14, 2017
Courtesy of: John Decas The 1950 Wareham Vikings football team will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in November.

Have you seen John Barboza, Barry Stinson, or Terry Casey? Do you know where they live?

They played football for Wareham High School in 1950. That year -- the first under the direction of Coach Clem Spillane -- the Vikings went undefeated and took home the championship title.

The team is being inducted into the school's Hall of Fame this year, and organizers would like to track down Barboza, Stinson, and Casey to invite them to the banquet on November 25.

Have any information? Contact Wareham High School Principal Scott Palladino at 508-291-3510.
