Jack Tatum: From Crouse To NFL Star

Crouse Community History & Photo Project
Press Release

CROUSE, N.C. – Crouse Community History and Photo Project is pleased to announce that Lincoln County historian Richard Smith will be joining us as co-presenter at the November 13 Crouse Community History and Photo Project meeting.

Richard, along with CCHPP members, will share with the group the research and process involved in the recent joint project: Jack Tatum: From Crouse to NFL Star.

This project grew out of the discovery that Oakland Raiders star Jack Tatum was born in Crouse, North Carolina and resided in the community with his family and grandparents until the age of six.

The presentation will follow Tatum’s journey beginning in Crouse, moving to Patterson, N.J., his high school career in Passaic N.J., college career at Ohio State and a professional career with the Oakland Raiders.

Following college Richard played professional baseball with the Washington Senators organization for six years.  Richard retired in 2000 after a 30-year career at Lincolnton High School where he both taught and coached.     He and his wife Patsy Stamey Smith, who was a high school class mate, have been married for over 50 years; they have one daughter, Kelli, a teacher at Love Memorial Elementary School.  Kellie is married to Tracy Huss and they have twins-a boy and a daughter.

Prior to the scheduled presentation we will enjoy a short seasonal digital photo collection.
