Shaw is inviting all of the members of its 2000 state football championship team to its Oct. 21 game against Troup at Kinnett Stadium for a 10-year reunion.
The players, coaches and cheerleaders from that year are asked to RSVP by Oct. 18 if they will attend.
You may RSVP to Mary Ann Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org; Scott Newman at email@example.com; Elaine Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org; or through the Shaw office at 706-569-3638.
Of course, having this before the Troup game only makes sense because Troup is now coached by Charles Flowers, who led Shaw to a 2000 football title and a 2001 baseball title.
Among the players who were members of that squad is Indianapolis Colts linebacker Philip Wheeler and Troy Bergeron, who spent a few games on the Atlanta Falcons active roster last year.
I will no doubt be putting together a story or two on this as it gets closer, and if you have some suggestions for a story on one of the members of that team who has gone on to do something particularly interesting, I'd be glad to hear it. E-mail me at email@example.com.
