The 50th Anniversary Tribute to Jefferson Memorial Stadium Photos.
On September 7, 1962 . . . Jefferson Memorial Stadium saw the first football game played on its football field. Exactly 50 years from that date, a group of participants from that debut night for the stadium met in Jefferson to honor the tradition of Jefferson Memorial Stadium.
Long time friends met to honor the stadium, were themselves honored with an introduction before the game, and watched as the Dragons rolled over rival Jackson County, 28 -6.
I want to thank the Jefferson High School administration, coaches and everyone that made this event possible. It was not a trivial event to us . . . but a major spectacle in our lives and minds.
It was indeed a night to remember.
