Thanks, Michael. That clears up a lot of loose ends about these photos.My father, B.F. Phillips, Jr., hosted the coaches outing to the Phillips Ranch in Frisco, Texas. I was a bit young myself at the time so do not recognize many faces. I do remember meeting Coaches Landry, Lombardi and Norm Van Brocklin. There is a picture at the bottom of the page titled "They're all having great fun." In that photo, on the far left, is Mr. B. A. "Hop" Hopkins (with the bullhorn), a long time employee and right hand man to my father. Mr. Hopkins was, as I remember it, providing commentary as the coaches were watching a demonstration of a quarter horse cutting contest in our covered arena. The steak dinner was catered by Coburn's of Fort Worth. In another photo, "After dinner they stood around and watched something happen", I think the man standing alone in the middle of the photo, cup in hand and in dark framed glasses is probably Dallas Cowboys owner Clint Murchison, as his team hosted the coaches meeting.
