Comment: My first unknown entry (more probably coming soon). Please help! Several, mainly or only younger boys and girls in different shorts. It’s a track and field contest (including hurdles). Obviously early 1980s.

Handsome blonde boys in yellow shorts (not sure if shiny). At least boys and girls in the red shorts are shiny shorts. Also white shorts and dark green shorts, maybe more colors.

There are also older teen boys in a bus, but not sure if in shiny shorts. I found a very brief, untitled clip on an older PC. Maybe someone can recognize the man below. The shirts on pic 1 carries Oakwood. But what state? Maybe NY? or LA? GA? CA? Oakwood School maybe LA. There are many black kids. One young black girl answered, she has a selfmade Basketball shirt.

Please comment if you know the title on either my blogs (anonymously also on my Blogspot blogs like the old overalls blog).

Update: I found it: The Comeback Kid (1980). Brief scene at the end. Also a young lady in light grey shorts. Still rating 8-9. First role of Patrick Swayze. Also starring Jeremy Licht.
