Gate Workers

When I was scouting football games for Batesville High School in the 70’s, I remember some of the difficulties we had getting into certain high school football fields.  Schools allowed opposing teams to scout their games free of charge.  Unfortunately, some athletic directors forgot to tell the person at the gate that this was the policy.  One particular school on our schedule always posed a headache for Roy Salatin and I.  No matter how many times we scouted that particular school, the same lady was always working the gate.  And, every year she would refuse to let us in the game.  Of course, we would try to explain why we were there and that it was policy to allow other schools to scout.  Even though the price of tickets in those days was minimal, it was the principle of the thing not to pay to get in.  Every year we had to ask her politely to get her athletic director or principal to come to the gate.  She would finally agree, and after what seemed like a long delay, one of the two would appear and say “sure, let them in”.  You would think that after the same two guys from the same school showed up every year to scout, she would have remembered.  However, she was given a job and she was bound and determined that everybody bought a ticket to get into the game.  Oh, well, it provides for a good story today and we really enjoyed giving her a rough time.
