Cyclones

During the the 1946 season the Cyclones, Wilson’s Charles L. Coon High School football team, were North Carolina state champions for the second time in three years.  Today I found a scrapbook in the magical library storage room that highlights that season. I’m in the process of scanning it and the photographs will be put up on our Flikr page.

The funny thing about their winning season was that Greensboro High School didn’t even show up for the championship game and the Wilson boys won by forfeit!
