Rhea County High School honors Terry Goins

Prior to kickoff of Friday night's home football game against Tuscola (N.C.), longtime Herald-News Sports Editor Terry Goins was honored for his 30 plus year career covering Rhea County Athletics.

In addition to countless hours spent on the sidelines and press box, throughout this life Goins has also served as a RCHS coach, county school board commissioner, the PA announcer for Rhea County Baseball and Basketball and the attendance office clerk at RCHS.

Known simply as "TG" to most around the community, Goins was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2018 and continues to undergo treatment. He's pictured above with members of his family and RCHS principal Jesse Messimer.
