From The ECHO (Spring 1989):
"The Varsity Football Team had a good  season. The team was 5-1 until they hit a low point and lost three of the next four games. They took these losses in-stride and turned their efforts towards the Playoffs.
Some of the key players were Terence Bowens, Billy Shackelford, Eddie Grose, Randy Melton, and Philip Rack. Despite defeat in the Playoffs, more spirit was shown by this year's Jackets than in many years past."
