In 1956, the Cherokee County Warriors won the boys varsity county tournament championship. In recognition of the 60th anniversary of that achievement, that team was honored on Friday following the Warrior boys semifinal game against Sand Rock.
The head coach of the 1956 Warrior team was T. A. Windham. Players included Henry “Plug” Ray, Randall McCord, Wayne Wilbanks, James Davis, Charley Whorton, Billy Mack Garrett, Haney Camp, Bill Trammell and Tommy Steele. Photo by Shannon Fagan, Sports Editor of the Cherokee County Herald.
