Eighty-nine students graduated from Brighton High School in 1942. Jerry Duroy remembers the high school’s football team won the class B state championship and celebrating on Dec. 6, 1941, a day before the attack on Pearl Harbor. Duroy said that six months after the championship, the teammates were together in the military, serving in World War II.
Over the years the team’s trophy had been lost. The class had it remade and will be giving it to Brighton High School to have in its display case.
