Dear Editor and Community,
“It’s a great year to be a PIRATE!” It’s certain that many share this sentiment. Making it to the final four in division 2-AA in the state playoffs is a tremendous feat. It’s been 12 years since the Pirates have had this honor. This has taken much effort on the part of the players, coaches, parents, cheerleaders, band, teachers, staff, and administration of Appling County High School. However, it cannot go unnoticed that fan and community support has been overwhelming. The support that the Pirates have experienced from local businesses, dedicated fans, and the board of education is awe-inspiring. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to all who have took the time to encourage and support the Pirates, Head Coach J.T. Pollock, and the coaching staff.
