RHS Homecoming Game Day Activities:

Approximately 60 people attended any or all of the following: School Tour, Homecoming Parade, Tailgate Party, Football Team Gathering or the Homecoming Game. The group was made up of RHS grads, family members, friends and former coaches. A great turnout for what became a very cold and windy afternoon and evening. They came from as far away as the Austin hill country, the greater Houston area and McAllen, TX. Skyline High School won the football battle on the field, but the Golden Eagle Band and Eaglettes, as always, won the halftime show!

Larry & Brenda (Erwin) James spearheaded the Gathering of the ’67-’68 State Semi-Finalist Football Team. A group of 18 players and coaches were in attendance. Many could still fit into their letter jackets! They were on the field, for the coin flip, to serve as Honorary Team Captains for the Eagles. Great job Larry & Brenda! Here’s who was there:

Head Coach Joe Simpson Butch Flippo
Coach Don Davis Bruce Gadd
David Arledge Stan Holmes
Bob “Farmer” Brown Greg Jacob
Bruce Butterfield Larry James
Paul Cabness Mike Marks
Barry Carnahan Mack Rogers
David Cordell John Swords
Tom Dewell John Wright
