LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Former Aggie football players and staff laughed and reminisced on the old days at Cameron's Football Reunion Saturday.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Cameron's final football national title in 1987. The reunion also honored all of the players who contributed to Cameron's success over the decade.

This morning, they had breakfast at Cameron and shared memories about what the football program meant to them.

Brian Naber was the coach of the '87 team that went 11-2 and defeated Carson-Newman 30-2 in Cameron Stadium. He says it's so special to be back with his former athletes and see how successful they've become.

"When I talk to these players, listen to their stories, it all brings it back to life, the great experiences, how glad they were they went to Cameron, what the University did for them.," said Naber. "So, it's more than wins and losses now. Back then it was about wins and losses, but today it's about what it's done for them."

Jim Jackson, Athletic Director at Cameron University says although they don't have a football program now, meeting the athletes who were a part of it all means a lot. He says this also helps him and his staff learn ways the University can grow and move forward.

"We don't want to lose sight of what they meant to the University," said Jackson. "I also believe that we nee to know where we've been so that we can move forward. So, it's just a party. So it's a good thing."

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
