SHERMAN, TX -- Grayson County is a hot bed for football, rich in history and long in the tooth in rivalries. The Sherman Museum is doing something new this year. They are putting on a special exhibit honoring a century plus of gridiron football. Its called 'Grayson County Football.'
"This is the first year we've done this type of exhibit. We noticed that it just hadn't been done before. And we know that north Texas has a rich high school football history and so we wanted to highlight that and let everyone know," said museum coordinator Chris Rumohr.
This exhibit will display everything from helmets to letterman jackets to football trophies.
The museum has been compiling these items from Grayson County schools for months.
"This has been a lot of fun. We've been getting things from the Sherman Ex-Student Association, we have gotten things from Denison students. We went around to all the schools in Grayson County and they have been very generous in loaning us items also," Rumohr added.
Museum goers will be able to see items that date back to almost a century ago.
We've got some things from the '30s. Like a trophy from Austin College that's from 1935. We've got a helmet pad from the '30s we've got shoulder pads from the '40s, yearbooks from the mid-twenties," she concluded.
The exhibit will be on display from Oct. 1 through Nov. 15. They are open daily Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but closed on Sunday's and Monday's.
