Little did I know what I was putting in motion when I added this tidbit to my annual Christmas list
“I want Rogersville to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 1982 state championship boys basketball team with an 80s night complete with coach Rod Gorman and his staff in Miami Vice attire. The Bolivar girls also won a title in ’82 so the same thing goes for coach Darin Archer and crew but let’s have them dress as an 80s hair band.“
While Rogersville & coach Gorman chose to pass on the suggestion, coach Archer & his staff did not. In fact they turned it into something special. After some encouragement from his team, Archer thought about the idea and saw a way to make it about a lot more than just fulfilling one of my Christmas wishes. The Keeling for Kids foundation in Bolivar was set up to honor the late great Bolivar girls coach Gary Keeling and provides assistance to underprivileged children in Polk County. Coach Archer took his idea to his administration, they approved, he cleared it with coach Eric DeRossett of Buffalo, and we then were able to announce it on the Scoreboard Show one evening. An 80s night would be held, the 1982 state championship team would be honored, and if they could raise $750 in donations to the Keeling for Kids Foundation, the Bolivar coaches would be dressed as 80s rockers. And so…
I am the one with no wig or hat on. It was a great evening. No final total on the donations yet but coach Archer told me it was well over the goal. 80s music was played all night, the cheerleaders & other were decked out in 80s gear, I saw jerseys reminiscent of that 82 team being worn, I had the privilege of meeting coach Keelings wife, and it was just a great evening. And what ref in his right mind would want to argue with…
coach Flavor Flav!

Big thanks to coach Archer, coach Stacy Wells, and coach Jeff Edge for letting me check one off the ole Christmas list. And thanks for letting me take part in helping raise money for such a fantastic cause. But be warned, since this worked, next year I’m asking for that 1970 Barracuda I’ve been wanting.
