In front of the LCHS football team fieldhouse, a beautiful wall features some of our school's most outstanding former football players. The wall features a mural made out of a modern, advanced sticker material. This mural was completed before the first home game of the 2011 football season.
The seven great football players featured on this wall are Danny Tarpley, Larry Parker, James Haney, Chris Howell, Alan Ingram, Dennis Grisham, and Donnie Belew. Danny Tarpley was a three sports star. Larry Parker played during a 10-0 season; he played college football at North Mississippi and Delta State. James Haney played for Bear Bryant at the University of Alabama during two national championship seasons! Dennis Grisham played on the 1974 state championship team and was an outstanding running back in the late 60’s.
This wall is dedicated to our rich football history. It honors a few of many great players who helped build our athletic tradition at Lauderdale County High School.
