|Champs bring us all together|
The Tigers and the Rebels made us all proud ... two state championships in football in the highest classifications in the state for the games.
Winning has rekindled the mystique and legendary tradition (nine state football titles at Neville) and reassured the tradition being established at West Monroe High (eight state titles). The wins unite us as citizens in the pursuit of excellence and in teaching students that anything is possible for those who work hard and play together as a team.
Both of my husbands, the late Elton Upshaw and Pat Anderson, played on the first state championship in football at Neville in 1955. They were friends: Pat was a pallbearer when Elton died, and they had mutual respect for each other's talents and what skills they brought to the game. Pat was Elton's key offensive guard and Pat made All-State as a tackle/guard back in the days that they played both ways. One of our favorite stories from the 1955 championship year was when Neville played Jonesboro.
