“Papa Bear” Statue Moved to New Location

PECKVILLE -- A statue honoring former Blakely High School football coach John "Papa Bear" Henzes is where many thought it should have been in the first place.

It now stands at the Valley View football stadium in Peckville that bears his name.

The statue was unveiled today after undergoing weeks of renovations.

It was moved from the intersection of Gino Merli Drive and Main Street in Peckville to the stadium.
