In 1960 on the front lawn of an elementary school in North East Dallas, a tradition was born. A group of seventh-grade boys, capturing the free time before Thanksgiving dinner, an occasion engaged in a game of touch football. It was a good day to play. So good in fact, that the game would resume each year, same time, same place.
Through the ebb and flow of lives, loves, and responsibilities, the Reilly Thanksgiving Invitational continued for 50-years. On the pages that follow are accounts of the lives, the game, and the tradition of RTI. Ours is a story with laughs, life lessons, and the true meaning of family and friendship.
The 50-year history of the RTI is chronicled in this the 60th Anniversary eBook; documented through photos, papers, videos and links. An interactive book providing the reader the best reading experience possible.
