Random ?....Am I wrong for not ....


Random ?....Am I wrong for not ....

Am I wrong for not knowing why Garners 1987 State Championship season keeps popping up on this site every so often.....I've been signed up for 2 years now and every few months this article keeps showing up....NOT slighting anyone just curious as to why it gets SO much LOVE on HSOT....

RE: Random ?....Am I wrong for not ....

the last team to win a title from Wake County

RE: Random ?....Am I wrong for not ....

WOW...really!!

Thanks lbeck!!

RE: Random ?....Am I wrong for not ....

The first time you saw it was last year the week of the state championship game. I know that because I spent about 12 hours getting it together. The only other time it has been in a prominent position on HSOT was last week because they were 1 game away from the title game again.

Not sure why this is worth a message board topic, but there you go. Take from it what you may.

RE: Random ?....Am I wrong for not ....

Garner's in WHAT COUNTY???...

RE: Random ?....Am I wrong for not ....

it's all good Nick....really I was just curious, plus even though the article may not have been posted ALOT...the topic of Garners 1987 team comes up often....being relatively new to the area and HSOT I was just trying to get a little enlightened on the areas football history.....

Didn't mean to ruffle feathers....seems like you got a lil defensive....Oh and good job putting it together....

Actually Great Job you guys do with the site in general!

RE: Random ?....Am I wrong for not ....

Did somebody mention 1987? Ever wonder why others create threads regarding GT's '87 title team, only to ask others why the topic keeps coming up?

If another team from Wake ever wins the Big One, they'll talk about them too.

RE: Random ?....Am I wrong for not ....

If you were around back then, you'd understand why '87 is still being talked about today. Story is the stuff of legends... David v Goliath, rural v urban, rich v poor, Hal Stewart v THE WORLD. It was as close as North Carolina might ever get again to "Hoosiers". Didn't hurt having an undersized running back who ran for over 3,000 yards while scoring 47 TD's, which at the time was a national record. So yeah, it was more than just your run of the mill state title win. And since it has now been over 25 years, it serves as a reminder to just how hard it is to win it all. OK, let me wake up and get back to 2012...

RE: Random ?....Am I wrong for not ....

^That pretty much sums it up, Patriot. True GT fans will always remember the run the '87 team had. It just doesn't get any better than that.

GO TROJANS!

Not sure why half the stuff on here is message board topic sometimes.
