The date: Friday, October 8, 1999.
The place: Veterans Memorial Stadium.
The event: Alachua Santa Fe-Palatka football game.
LIVE OAK — Palatka High returned two kickoffs for touchdowns and also had an explosive play in the passing game.
Unfortunately for the Panthers, it was too little, too late.
Palatka won both halves of a Thursday afternoon meet at St. Johns Country Day in Orange Park, 66-27 for the boys and 46-44 for the girls.
About 20-25 years ago, the prospect of having a St. Johns River Community College baseball team player in Major League Baseball was no bigger than winning the lottery.
