We have been hard at work on a documentary film entitled A Last Hurrah, that commemorates the golden age of high school football in the 1950s. The cornerstone of the film is the CIF Championship game between Downey and Anaheim. To watch a five minute promo of the film, please click on this link:

Much of this documentary has already been filmed, but we are currently seeking funds to finish production. Jim Fassel, former head coach of the N.Y. Giants and an Anaheim High School graduate, has been promoting the film as well. To view the two-minute promo featuring Fassel, please click on this link:

The title game betwenn Downey and Anaheim was a memorable event for the class of '57. To help preserve this moment - and this era - for future generations, please consider a donation toward the completion of A Last Hurrah. Your donation can be tax-deductable if donated through the Anaheim High School Alumni Association (who is acting as a fiscal agent; all funds donated through them go toward the film), or you can donate through a GoFundMe page, or through PayPal. All information about how to donate, as well as many photos and other information, can be found at the official website for this film by clicking on this link:

We are looking forward to hearing from you. If you have memories of a special event in your senior year, please share it with us.

Thank you, and we are looking forward to seeing you in October!
