Video - 1972-73 TAS Football Season
Since American football was not a sport played by Iranians, Tehran American School created three football teams in the high school and four in the middle school so we, as Americans, could enjoy our home country sport complete with cheerleaders, pom-pom girls, marching band, and baton twirlers.  There was one more football team from Community School, which enrolled all nationalities.  The team names were Phantoms, Raiders, Vikings, and also Marauders in the middle school with the Community School Trojans.

These video segments were filmed by TAS parent, Don Laflin, Sr., with a 16mm Bell&Howell camera in 1972 and '73 football seasons.
