CLOSED SCHOOLS

There was also a Rogersville High and before they split to make East and West there was Morristown High...

 

Also, Jefferson High, Maury High are some in Jefferson County...might have been a couple others like Rush Strong High and White Pine High...maybe?

 

In Campbell County there was Wynn-Habersham...

 

Campbell county also had Lafollette, and Jacksboro high schools, in addition to Wynn of Habersham. A couple of old ones from I believe Scott county were Norma, and Pruden high schools. At one time Knox county had a school called Van Gilder. Is Tellico Plains still a high school?

Tellico Plains is still alive and kicking...

 

Can't forget Horace Maynard being renamed to Union Co.

Duncan was the Longhorns.

 

Somebody asked where Haynes was...it was in the Bordeaux/North Nashville area. It closed at the end of the '66-'67 year, and their kids went to Cumberland, which is where I saw my first game in 1967.

There were several Haynes guys who ended up at Stratford - Lawrence Haywood and the Clark brothers.

I grew up at Peay park at about the same time. Jamie Denton was a year behind me in baseball ages. I played kids football with a Donny Stubblefield, and in Florida, met a fingerprint technician named Stubblefield, who had grown up in Goodlettsville.

 

I played baseball there from '71-'78 (from 9-17).

 

 

Well I was around the ballpark in those years too. Actually from 1963 to 1978. I coached after I was too old to play.

Some others in northeast Tennessee were:

 

Fall Branch Cardinals - combined with Boones Creek Bars (Daniel boone's spelling of Bears) and Sulphur Springs to form Daniel Boone

 

Blountville Tigers - combined with Holston to form Sullivan Central.

 

Mary Hughes, Bluff City and Holston Valley combined to form Sullivan East.

 

Lynn View Lynxes and Ketron Wildcats combined to make Sullivan North.

 

Church Hill Panthers and Surgoinsville Eagles combined to form Volunteer.

 

Rogersville Warriors and Bulls Gap combined to form Cherokee

 

Sullivan (referred to as Sullivan West) Pirates was combined with part of the Sullivan Central district to form Sullivan South.

 

Jonesboro was combined with, I believe, Lamar and maybe one or two others to form David Crockett.

 

Erwin Blue Devils now Unicoi County - may have been consolidated with another school.

 

Not all of the schools mentioned played football. I could not be sure about some of them so I did not attempt to name the ones that did and the ones that did not.
