LHS FOOTBALL TEAM CHASES DOWN BANK ROBBER
Farmers add "Fighting" to their nickname
There are thousands of stories about Lewisville's past, but only a handful have been told and re-told often enough to become legends. One such legendary tale relates the stirring events of Sept. 30, 1946, when members of the Lewisville High School football team chased down an armed bank robber. As with nearly any legend, some parts of the tale may have been embellished in the ensuing years, but the basic facts are well documented by participants, witnesses and contemporary newspaper accounts.
