As I told Bud Johnson, Istrouma teams even in the late 40's were going to Alvin Roys to work out three times a week.
My father was on the 47-48-49 teams and made 1st team all city in 1949.
Alvin as everyone knows brought the first weight set to Istrouma in 1954, but that is long after his work with the Istrouma teams in the summers of 1948-53.
My Uncle played on the Istrouma teams with Billy Cannon.
