Fast forward to July, 2010. Crews working on Bearcat Stadium's drainage problems are putting in a new field. They removed about seven inches of dirt. That's when the rains came and flattened out the soil.
"I just saw something shiny down there. I picked it up and I didn't think a whole bunch about it. It was a ring," said Jeff Hinton, a Sherman ISD employee.
Hinton and Matt Mitchusson found a 1969 yearbook and matched the initials engraved on the ring to Detro. They found a "Detro" in Sherman, Gary's sister-in-law, who led them to Gary in Celina.
Detro had looked through the field for days after losing the ring, and then bought a replacement. Link
