I remember cheering in the stands on cold winter nights as a 1976 graduate. But most memory is my brother Novell Jackson breaking all kinds of records on that cold hard field, good times, good times.

The real question that everyone is afraid to ask. Four days without a bathroom? How did you poop up there?

My most memorable moment was when we played the powder puff game on that field. That year the Juniors clearly beat the Seniors, but tradition allowed them to win. "86 " Rocks!!!! Haha!!!!

There are so many memories on that field but I will say that during my cheerleading times of 90-93 I had the opportunity to cheer on the football team to many great victories. As well as dodging football players as they came full force towards you on the sideline. We didn't have any seperation from the field. That was good times being up close to the action.
