Tonight in LHS parking lot
Sam Harp has always considered himself a “big tent” kind of guy. How appropriate is it then that tonight’s inaugural “We Are Lebanon” rally will be staged under a tent in the Lebanon High parking lot?
The brainchild of the Lebanon Blue Devil Football Foundation, the 6 p.m. event will serve as a kickoff of sorts for the 2014 football season and is offered free to the public.
“I’d like to personally invite all the old Blue Devils to attend,” Coach Harp said, “Lebanon is a football town, there is a real love affair with this program and the men who played here.
“We’re trying to inspire that same kind of loyalty in our current generation of Blue Devils.”
Former LHS coach Mark Medley has agreed to speak at the rally. Medley, now retired, went 64-18 in seven years at Lebanon -- a .780 winning percentage.
He took his teams to seven consecutive trips to the TSSAA playoffs, averaging nine wins a season between the year of 1987 - 1993.
“Coach Medley is a revered figure in Blue Devil football,” said Taylor Vandever, president of the Lebanon Blue Devil Football Foundation.
“I’m sure many of his former players will want to hear his remarks and reconnect with him.”
Plans also call for the new Blue Devil helmet logo to be unveiled.
Sponsored by Tressler & Associates PLLC Attorneys at Law, the Foundation will be joined by the LHS All-Sports Booster Club in providing free food on a first-come, first-served basis.
Zaxby’s chicken will be served along with hamburgers and hotdogs.
All former players and current supporters are urged to attend.
"We Are Lebanon" t-shirts will be available for purchase as will season tickets at Tribble Field / Watkins Stadium.
Any donations collected will directly benefit the Blue Devil football program.
