In 1971 and 1972, Trigg County High School earned its only two football state championships in school history. On Saturday, members of those teams were inducted into the fourth class of the TCHS Athletic Hall of Fame.

Those able to attend the weekend festivities were recognized during the Wildcats’ 42-21 win Friday over Marshall County at Perdue Field and spoke at Saturday’s banquet in the school cafeteria.

“You would not believe the respect these players have for each other,” said Mike Wright, Hall of Fame executive committee member. “Not every player can sign with Alabama or Kentucky or Western Kentucky, but one of the things I kept hearing was the respect for the guys on the second team. They’d say, ‘Is this guy going to be there? You have to realize, that guy got run over by Selby Grubbs three years in a row in practice.’ The second-teamers might have been the toughest guys in the state.”

After the teams were recognized during halftime of Friday’s game, several players lined up for one play from midfield.
