How did Cassie go from “We’re still getting married” to “I deserve it”?
I don’t remember a panel or a strip showing a major change of heart.
Bring back Daren McBride.
He was head football coach of Arlington High School.
Perhaps they could play this fall and Arlington could pound Milford.
Many of Gil’s former players have been listed as football coaches elsewhere (in the where are they now section of “Fired Up”).
It is only logical he would face some of them at some point.
I see two very pissed off parents very, very soon.
By the way, shouldn’t baseball have started by now in high schools?
What Cassie is doing is not that unusual though.
I can’t remember how many young women I’ve seen get turned down by a guy they like so they go enthusiastically running back to some loser who they dumped earlier.
I wonder if the comics sections of newspapers are stored at public libraries?
The way they used to store stuff on microfilm and microfiche.
I suppose it is all computerized now.
But if the comics are stored, I’ve thought about going and printing out the Gil Thorp strips from years ago.
Mainly the football seasons from 1975, 1976, and 1983.
Would this be doable?
I have the Gil Thorp collections:
1) Fired Up
2) Under The Friday Night Lights
3) The Best of Gil Thorp Vol 3
4) Welcome To Camp Pinewood
Does anyone know where any of the other collections are available at a reasonable price?
And does anyone know if any of the collections include the 1975 and/or 1976 football seasons?
Most schools and laws would see Steve as being a “person in authority” and thus not allowed to have sexual relations with a student.
Though Steve not being a teacher might make a difference.
Anyone have a favorite character in all of Gil Thorpe history?
Mine is Darren McBride.
QB in 1976. Hopefull in 1974 & 1975.
Out of all of Milford’s great quarterbacks
Robbie Cannon, Josh Sterling, Charlie Carton, Arnie Wilcox, Brad Ellis, Doug Wiley, Jarvis White
Darren McBride was the least physically talented by far.
Small, slow, with a weak arm.
Yet he was arguably Milford’s second greatest quarterback. Only Josh Sterling can make a better argument.
With no physical tools to work with, McBride used his intelligence, drive, and incredible leadership skills to make himself into a champion quarterback.
He stood up to his parents, coaches, and fellow teammates. Basically imposing his will upon them.
Milford never had someone with McBride’s leadership skills in their huddle before or since.
The first time he stepped on the field as a sophmore against Jefferson, he led the team on a 78 yard winning touchdown drive, carrying the ball the last 22 yards himself, and suffering a severe cuncussion in the process.
On his last play for Milford, with his broken throwing hand in a cast, he tossed the winning touchdown pass left handed to beat Valley Tech for the title.
In truth, you can’t blame Milford High for moving slowly. Their teachers and employees have been dogged by FALSE sexual harassment and inappropriate conduct allegations over the years.
The last one nearly cost them 50 million dollars when Marty Moon’s sister leaked the name of the Volleyball Coach being accused by two girls of groping them.

Maybe Steve’s idea about not actually becoming a teacher or a coach is about to pay serious dividends.
