APB, Where are they now?

With the start of high school football camps hours away, the Varsity Letters felt the time was right to issue an All Points Bulletin for a former local football standout.

We're looking for former Mapletown alum Gerod Buckhalter.

In 2002 and 2003, Buckhalter put up numbers no receiver previously had for the Maples and, at 6-4, he received some interest from Division I schools. Mapletown football coach George Messich once called Buckhalter, "One of the best pure receivers I've seen in Class A football."

Buckhalter turned up as an assistant coach at Mapletown but we haven't heard his name mentioned in a while. Anyone with information regarding Buckhalter is urged to contact the Varsity Letters.

Gerod worked on an Oil Rig and now works in the coal mine I believe, he was a great athlete and the best receiver I ever threw to. Just a shame we only had 1 year together, I haven't seen much of him lately but he's got his head on straight and is working hard to take the next step in his life.
