“It is the most emotional sport known to man,” former football coach Harold Clayton Kenyon Jr. said.

GUILDERLAND — Forty years ago, Harold “Bud” Kenyon said, he caught a student — “a peeping tom,” he called him — looking into the girls’ locker room. A popular and successful varsity football coach, Kenyon took the boy to the high school principal’s office.

“The first two times did no good,” Kenyon told The Enterprise. The third time, when he found the boy hiding in the bleachers, he recalled, “I told him, ‘Get down’ and he said, ‘Get lost.’ I got him by the nape of the neck and the seat of the pants and took him to the office.”

That incident came back to haunt Kenyon this week as the Guilderland School Board decided, once and for all, not to name the high school football field for Kenyon as originally planned.

In its 200th year, the town of Westerlo is celebrating with its sister city in Belgium and delving into its history.

The intiative for "positive peer pressure" came about after a parent expressed worries about student athletes using drugs.

The athletic department and its supporters will still be celebrating 60 years of football at Guilderland this fall but the plan to dedicate the field to Coach Harold “Bud” Kenyon has been scrapped.
