Bell, Spencer, Pack Families

This year's Family Heritage Award was the personal choice of Coach Holtz and goes to the Bell, Spencer and Pack Families of East Liverpool. "Since before I was born, we have had a Bell or a Pack or a Spencer play for the Potters," expressed Holtz in making the nomination.

The heritage of the three families goes back to their migration to East Liverpool from the south, with Less and Mattie Coleman Bell coming from Hopkinsville, Ky.; Oliver and Naomi Wooten Spencer from Waycross, Ga.; while Phillip and Sally Irene Pickford Pack arrived from Alabama by way of West Virginia.

From 1932 to 2004, no less than 20 members of the three families played football for the East Liverpool Potters.
