Gulf head football coach Jay Fulmer thanks Pete Burr, the winning bidder for a football signed by the Gulf players and coaches. The auction was part of a fund raiser held tonight for the football program, which began with a potluck dinner and an auction of cakes baked by players. Coach Fulmer said he held similar events when he coached football in Kentucky, but this was the first dinner-auction at Gulf. Fulmer said the highest-ever bid for the signed football auction in Kentucky was $625. Mr. Burr, father of Gulf sophomore quarterback Madison Burr, paid $700 for this football.
