SHOWBOATS TRIVIA

--
Logan Young, Jr. was initially the sole shareholder of Memphis Pro Football, Inc., which was awarded the Showboats franchise.
--
Young inherited his fortune from his father, taking over the family business, Mid-South Beverages.  He also was involved in another family enterprise, Osceola Foods, a private-label margarine manufacturer.  Young sold Mid-South in 1982.
--
Charles J. Thornton was the Vice President of Memphis Pro Football, having previously been the Associate Athletic Director at Texas A&M.  As the team's GM, Thornton was paid a base salary of $80,000 (more than most of his players).
--
Awbrey G. Norris was the Showboats Secretary and Treasurer.
--
Potential investors in the Showboats were advised that the possibility existed that the team would never see a profit, and that there might not be a market for their ownership interests - in other words, you might lose every dime you invest, and you may not be able to bail out if you decide to do so down the road.
