Still the champs!



A whole lot of 1976 glory visited Rockdale Friday as the RHS state champion football and track teams from 1976- 77, including head coach Fred Johnson and assistants Lew Simmonds and Dick Wiegand, were honored at the fifth annual Rockdale Sports Hall of Honor induction Friday. Above, Simmonds visits with current Tigers (L-R) Nosario Garcia, Clayton Gibbs and Austin Caffey while viewing an enlarged photo of the 1977 track champions.
