Former Fike High School Cyclone football coach Henry Trevathan, right, and Dr. Risto Suomalainen from Helsinki, Finland, met Saturday to reminisce amid sports memorabilia at Dick's Hot Dog Stand. Trevathan coached the Cyclones to three state 4-A football championships in 1967, 1968 and 1969. Suomalainen was an exchange student in 1969 and kicked for the football team. He has returned to Wilson five times over the years. Suomalainen had scheduled this year's trip so he could participate in the dedication of a stone monument to Trevathan and the championship teams. Due to Hurricane Dorian, the dedication has been rescheduled to Oct. 11, but the kicker was able to meet up with his old coach again.
