MARYS – A group of former area high school athletes seeking to have the St. Marys Area School District's high school football field renamed after alumnus and former pro football player Dan Conners were met with resistance by the district's board of directors who asked if Conners' on-field achievements were enough to warrant the distinction, given what was characterized as his frayed and distant ties to the community.
