Demopolis High to honor 2004, 2009 state title teams

Demopolis High School is seeking members of the 2004 and 2009 state championship football teams. The school is seeking to honor members of those squads at its Oct. 3 contest with Sumter Central.

“We want to get them all back that we can,” Demopolis football coach Tom Causey said. “We want to have a little reception for them in the cafeteria; football players, cheerleaders, coaches, anybody that was involved in those teams.”

Members of the 2009 squad will be honored on the field prior to the start of the game with Sumter Central while the 2004 team is set to be honored at halftime.

“Those are two accomplishments. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into those accomplishments and we want to recognize them,” Causey said, noting that this season marks the fifth anniversary of the 2009 state title and the 10th anniversary of the 2004 state championship.

Any former player, cheerleader or coach looking to be involved in the festivities are to meet in the DHS cafeteria at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3.
