August 28, 2012
MARTIN, Tenn. – Former Lebanon High and UT Martin football standout Danny Watkins (Lebanon High School Class of 1973) stood in front of the scoreboard / jumbotron at Clifton-Tribble Field / Danny Watkins Stadium Friday, Nov. 24.
The Blue Devils dropped a 27-6 decision to Franklin County in the home-opener, the inaugural varsity game at the new complex located off Hartmann Drive.
Watkins and the late Tribble (a former LHS standout and award-winning coach) were honored with their names being linked to the new 4,700-seat facility. Both are members of the Lebanon High Sports Hall of Fame.
Watkins wore his old LHS game jersey to the game and offered pregame remarks to the team.)
