Leo Terrian – Athlete Class of 1957
Leo Terrian is a 1957 graduate of Mackinaw City High School who has long been known as a former Comet standout on both the gridiron as a football player and the court as a basketball player. On the football field, Leo was an all conference selection as both a halfback and a linebacker. On the court, Leo starred on and was a member of some dominant teams under Hall of Fame coach Francis McMahon.

Following her career, the MCPS Board of Education recognized her accomplishments formally. Julie scored 1131 career points in basketball, one of only 4 girls to do so.
