Missing Class Ring Found 41 Years Later

Gary Detro lost his high school class ring at a football game in Sherman, Texas during his senior year. That was in 1969, and he never found it. Until now.
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
