The 1967, 1968, and 1969 

Pisgah High School Football Teams Honored 

*The Pisgah High School 1967, 1968, and 1969 Football Teams were recognized at the homecoming football game Friday, October 2, 2009. The following is taken from the introduction and recognition bestowed upon these teams.

These teams (1967, 1968, and 1969), coached by Sam Kenimer and the late Paul Cooley, have a combined record of 23-3-2.

The 1967 team had a record of 9-1 for the season.  They were the first team in Pisgah High School History to earn a trip to the state playoffs.  They finished with a 9-2 record - losing only to Colbert County in the first round of the state playoffs.  That same year they were named Jackson County Champs, Big Nine Conference Champs, Alabama Class 3A standings (4th Place).  Some accomplished players from that year were Mike Atkins - Most valuable Line, All Conference, and All North Alabama; Jack Buttram - All Conference; and Jerry Underwood - Most Valuable Player and Back, All State, All North Alabama, and All Conference.

The team of 1968 had a winning season of 8-1-1. They opened the season with a 21-0 win over Sparkman High School.  They tied with Bridgeport 0-0 in an outstanding defensive battle and were beaten by Saks High School.  They earned the titles of Jackson County Champs and the Big Nine Conference Champs.  Three of the players - Donnie Gant, Roger Pruett, and Larry E. Millican - signed scholarships that year.

The 1969 team had an unbeaten season with a record of 9-0-1.  They tied their season opening game with Sparkman with a final score of 6-6.  Tom Turner, Ray Maxwell, and Rodney Koger were named MVP's.  They were crowned Jackson County Champs and remain the only team in Pisgah's history to go undefeated.

 *A moment of silence in honor of those players - Donnie Gant, Tony Laney, Jimmy Atchley, and Billy Mason - who are no longer with us was held.

Coach Sam Kenimer along with Mrs. Elizabeth Cooley presented Roger Pruett and Ray Maxwell with signs to honor their achievements at Pisgah High School. 

Roger and Ray Eddie both signed SEC scholarships after finishing their careers at Pisgah.  Roger signed with Auburn University and punted for the tigers under the leadership of Coach Shug Jordan.  Roger still holds several records at Auburn today. 

Ray Eddie signed a scholarship with the University of Alabama and played for the legendary Paul "Bear" Bryant.  Ray Eddie played on several SEC Championship teams and one National Championship team.

We would like to thank all of these gentlemen for starting a Tradition of Winning that continues today.
