This article is written in memory of Coach Alexander, Eddie Giles, James Allen and Wayne Birkenfeld and dedicated to team members that have had certain health and career challenges in their lives. Thanks for the Friday Night memories and for giving me a course in Football 101 instead of Algebra. Watching college and pro football has been a hobby of mine through the years and some people ask me how I know so much about football. Well, I tell them living in Goree going to football games was what we did from the first grade through twelfth. Not much anything else to do in Goree except sports. I wouldn't change a thing.
(Let's keep the history of Goree football alive; write yours and submit it to the Goree Blog.)
