Alumni Return to LCHS Reunion Game 2009





It was a night to cheer for the new

LCHS Raiders 2009 Varsity Team

Opening Game!!!

Coach Hill thought... 'Maybe we should invite those who got the tradition of Raiders football started, and those who have kept it going...'
and so begins a new traditon for LCHS!!!
The hope is that each year all those who are past coaches and players will be there to honor our school and it's tradition of Sportsmanship and love of football as the season opens.

From the blue and gold decorated cookies and cake... to the field of cheerleaders and players and the LCHS Marching Raider Band...

To the exciting play on the field...

to the first appearance of the LCHS ROTC Honor/Color Guard...

it was a "CREATION DAY"
["It is a Creation Day" was J Lupton Simpson's favorite morning opening while a Vice Prncipal at LCHS - Yes, the same J. Lupton Simpson that the middle school is named after!]

The Raiders made a statement to the visiting Musselman WV team...
A 38-0 victory...
"We are a force to be reckoned with this year!"

Check out the photos I had the great opportunity to take...
and to be with the same guys I played football with in the early 60's -
including the famous RAIDERS COMEBACK VICTORY over Fauquier High School in 1964 - [Click here to read that story!]

and to meet the 2 of the ORIGINAL RAIDERS 1955 Champion Team!

The Program for this year had the football jersey from the very first year of LCHS Football on the cover - courtesy of a donation at the LCHS 50 year Anniversary from Donald Beach!
