Hugh Dunn

Eighty-five year old Hugh Dunn heads to the work shed of the Macon High School football field for some paint. The World War II veteran still paints the field and mows the lawn the morning of game days. Dunn coached the Macon Tigers for over 40 years after serving in the war and as a national MVP defensive back in college.
Dunn is helped by one of his former players to paint the lines on the field

Tools of the Trade.Hugh struggles a bit with missing some of his left arm and eye but gets along pretty amazingly for an 85 year old man. The Missouri Sports of Hall inductee only lives a few steps from the high school. Dunn is a major figurehead in the small northern Missouri town, and can be found at almost any Macon sports game.
