Fire on the Mountain (AL): The Undefeated 1985 Sand Rock Wildcats
In 1985, a high school football team in Sand Rock, Alabama, made
history. Through the excitement of an undefeated season and a
championship-winning game, the lives of players, coaches and everyone in
the community were changed. |
The Wildcats and their fans experienced the
rush of unexpected media attention and statewide acclaim and dealt with
the challenge of life lessons learned over the course of a season that
few believed possible.
Join author Scott Wright, a lifelong resident of
Cherokee County, as he recounts the story with the flare of a sports
journalist and the warmth of a local fan. The fiery passion of
small-town high school football is alive and well on Lookout Mountain.
Scott Wright graduated from the University of Alabama in 1993.
He is the managing editor of the Post, a weekly newspaper in Centre, Alabama.
He is also the author of A History of Weiss Lake, also from The History Press.
The book is available at Amazon.com.
