GOLDEN GLORY: Masconomet marks 50th anniversary of unbeaten 1963 squad

A request for the folks at Peabody High: Yard lines. The grass at Coley Lee Field is only painted with markers every five yards, meaning there are no “dash marks” in between to indicate the individual yard lines. Thus, if the football is spotted between the 20 and the 25, it’s left to the reporters, statisticians, announcers and fans to guess if the ball is on the 22-yard line, or perhaps the 23.
