The name “Archie Milton” was synonymous with boxing throughout the West Bay during the decade of the fifties, when “Boys Night” was one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the Sequoia athletic calendar.  Although he participated in both football and wrestling, Milton was the undisputed Boys Night star when the ring show drew turnaway crowds and turned the gymnasium into a cauldron of screaming fans.  The quick-handed Milton was a multiple Boys Night champion before attending San Jose State, where he won the NCAA heavyweight championship twice and earned runner-up status a third year under legendary coach Julie Menendez. Milton’s 1958 boxing team is enshrined in the San Jose State University Hall of Fame.  After graduation, and a run at the U.S. Olympic Boxing Trials, he hung up the gloves to launch a lifelong career battling juvenile delinquency. He enjoys retirement in Santa Cruz following service with probation departments in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.
