|Pepperell Kids honoring Coach Harold Turner
A group of men gathered together for lunch on August
22, 2011 at a local restaurant in Opelika to honor former Coach Harold Turner. George Crawford arranged the get together.
Twenty former football/sports players/students plus some wives attended. George read the above proclamation and
stories were shared about how Coach had impacted their lives so many years ago. This is a great tribute to Coach
Turner that these men still look up to, admire and respect him as much as they did sixty years ago. Some came from
as far away as Atlanta, Georgia, Pensalcola, Florida and North Alabama to attend this event, as well as those who
live locally. This was arranged on short notice, otherwise more would likely have attended.
- L to R seated: George Crawford, Ted Worthington, Boyd Hodge, Coach Turner, Doug Smith, Tommy Sasser, Billy Clark.
Standing L to R: Phil Knight, Wiley Post, Jimmy Thomaston, Larry Boddie, Arthur Ezell, Jerry Robinson, Fred Birchfield,
