B-U-L-L-D-O-G-S! Let’s go Dogs! The cry rang out in each pep rally in 1976.
Pep rallies were not just a spontaneous gathering of people all shouting support for the Bulldogs. Behind each one were hours of careful preparation.
Cheerleaders not only practiced cheers and jumps, but also created skits to add a touch of comedy to the spirit. Meanwhile, the band rehearsed the Alma Mater and “The Horse.”
Peppers took part in hanging posters, and along with the cheerleaders, they got to the gym early to get things organized.
Finally, the student body entered with loud voices and clapping, and the gym began to roar with noise.
“The spirit seemed better than last year,” said junior Karen McCarty.
The Colors Day and Homecoming convocations were special pep rallies. Others featured special events such as the announcements of the winners of the Mr. Irresistible contest. It was won by Brooks Clower, senior; Calvin Tackett, junior; and Tyler Trumbo, sophomore.
Pep rallies were a spirit experience!
