Diles' 1965 Romans Team Considered One Of LA's Best
Cal Hi Sports gives the 1965 LA High School Romans the honorable mention nod as one of the city’s 18 best high school football team’s in the city’s history. Greg Diles was named 2nd team all-city that year. The year before, they lost in the playoffs, but in ’65 they won the city championship (California didn’t start doing state championships until ten years ago). Sadly, I have not been able to track down any living members of the old team. Kicker Gil Ledezma tried out for the Rams a few times, but always got cut. He was 5’2″ tall with a great leg.
