The show of support like the welcome-home event Saturday has been an inspiration to the General Brown football team. The community has shown its support for the Lions.
“I think it’s a big part of our success,” coach Doug Black said. “This program for years, starting under Fisher, the community’s been a big part of it. We get great support from the parents, from the administration here and from residents in general. You always feel like they got your back and it makes a big difference at the games.”
