LCHS Football Coach Marston Speaks at Rotary

 

by Bob Augustin Jr.

 

 

 

 

 

     Coach David Marston of the Lawrence County High School Football Team was the guest speaker at the August 31 meeting of the Lawrenceburg Rotary Club.  Coach Marston gave a recap of the Wildcats victory over arch-rival Loretto High School in the first, and hopefully last, "Lightning Bowl."  Due to intense lightning at game time Friday night, the game was postponed until Saturday night, when, during the third quarter of the game Saturday night, the lightning display commenced again, and the game was called by mutual consent.  Coach Marston stated that, despite the inconvenience it may have cause some folks, he supported the referee's decision to postpone Friday and then to call the game the next night.  The safety of the players and the spectators comes first.

     Next, Coach Marston talked about the Cowbell Game with Giles County High School that evening.  He then introduced  the four Senior players who joined him at the meeting,  Lee Rogers, Jeremy Bond, Charlie Edwards, and Trae Brannon, and emphasized how important it was to the Seniors to return the Cowbell to LCHS.

     Coach Marston dedicated the rest of his presentation to informing the club of the cost of fielding a football.  There are many costs most people aren't aware of, such as, field maintenance, transportation to away games, and feeding a bunch of hungry teenage boys after a game.  He brought with him a complete regulation football uniform and gave the cost of each item.  For example, a football helmet, without a face mask, costs $120, a home game jersey costs $50, and an away white jersey cost $40.  All totaled, it costs $587 to outfit one player, and there are sixty-seven varsity players on the squad.  This number does not include the Freshman and E. O. Coffman players.
