One of my favorite books of all time. Had the pleasure to meet Doris Kearns Goodwin years back at a lecture series, where she told interesting stories about being an intern for LBJ.

GCHS alum here. Derek Combs was a year older than me, and GC was GREAT at football that year, losing to Mike Doss and Canton McKinley in the playoffs at the coldest game I’ve ever attended. Combs couldn’t get any traction because the field was all ice and snow. In ‘99 GC was also ranked in the top 25 in USA Today high school rankings. The great tradition of football has died for two reasons:

1) The splitting of talent with Central Crossing. This is the primary reason.

2) GC is in southwestern city schools , which can’t pass a levy and they lost sports for a year. That was devastating. 

The marching band is considered one of the premier bands in the state and most people come to the games to watch them. 

I was fortunate enough to live there in the Glorious ‘90s. Great times. Go DAWGS!
