Who Needs Herschel?

79 1114 02

Nov  14, 1979

It was probably the largest crowd to ever witness a football game in Soperton. Extra bleachers were brought in as required for a play-off. Herschel Walker showed up, but was not really needed, as the super team from Johnson County shut out the Vikings, 40-0.

Others that week: Eastside Motors, east on GA 29 at the city limit (Country Wares and Walden's Way in 2009), was selling lots of cars. Also football, Welcome Center, Carl Gillis, Sub-varsity football, Herbert burns with a beaver trap, and Jon Warnock's spotted deer.
