Writer seeks STH 1979 Football Team members for reunion


web posted September 1, 2009
Dear Editor: To the 1979 Strom Thurmond Football Team
As the head football, coach at Strom Thurmond, I try to instill, in my players the same principles that you were taught in 1979. I was an assistant to Coach McAlister in, the mid 80’s so I feel obligated to make sure those principles are still taught. I try to draw from the history of our program in my talks to the players.

I had a sign put up under the scoreboard a few years ago to recognize the many accomplishments of past teams. I constantly point to that sign and tell them they have inherited the chance to be a part of a great program. We talk all the time about, “what are you going to do with your inheritance?”

With, that being said, in 2006 I asked the 1986 state runner up team to have a reunion and be recognized at one of our home games. I feel it is important for past accomplishments to be recognized and for our players to see it and be a part of it. I would like for your 1979 team to be recognized for the 30 year anniversary of the upper state championship and this will be Friday, September 18 at our home game vs. South Aiken.

The following is a schedule of events My contacts in the planning for this has been, David Satcher and Jasper Griffin. Please contact one of them if you have any questions.

6:00 Meet in the cafeteria with Coach Mac, Coach, T to talk, have refreshments, etc.
7:15 Move to the fenced area beside the scoreboard to participate in the handshake line with this year’s teat.
7:30 Sit together and enjoy the game.

Halftime: With about 3 minutes to go in, the half, Coach Mac will get everyone down at the gate at the scoreboard and you will move onto the sideline at halftime to be introduced,
I hope each of you can attend this event. Our players have beard so much, about the history of this program, and I would, love for each of them to be able to shake your hand before the game. I hope you find our players still play with pride, CLASS, COURAGE, AND THE WILL TO WIN!

Sincerely,
Coach Lee Sawyer
