5 state title game appearances and 3 gold balls during his tenure. I'm a huge TN high school football fan. And yes, he was a legend.
I'm a Henry County alum and fan. One of the most memorable games I can remember came back in 1992 in the semifinals against Calvin Short's Green Wave. The game was played at Henry County. A bad snap at the end all but concluded it, and Gallatin hung on for a 16-13 victory and went on to beat Clinton in the finals the following week. Great game, but a horrible ending for us. That was a sour taste that lingered for a while. Luckily we finally got over the hump and won a gold ball this past year after losing in 4 previous trips to the semifinals. Stings a lot less now.
