Terry Goins

Rhea County High School will recognize one of its biggest fans and supporters for the last several decades when school officials honor Terry Goins prior to kickoff at Friday night’s home game against Tuscola (N.C.).

With over 30 years of Rhea County sports coverage, dedication to the county education system as the high school attendance clerk, coach and a short period on the Rhea County School Board, Goins’ colossal influence in the Rhea County community stretches far beyond the county lines.

Known simply as “T.G.” to many around the area, Goins will serve as an honorary captain during Friday night’s pregame coin toss as the school recognizes his faithfulness to Rhea County High School athletics.

Kickoff for the non-district tilt with the Mountaineers is set for 7:30 p.m. at Bill Horton Field in Evensville.
