LHS Pep Rally for State Championship Football Game - 1989- Lancaster SC Photos

Students, football players, faculty, news media, and family members gather at a pep rally in the former Lancaster High School gym in December of 1989. 

Sitting on the floor is the 1989 football team led by Johnny Roscoe with the 1959 players behind them. It was the team's first trip to the state championship game since the 1959 team won the title under Wade Corn. 

The '89 team played Northwestern at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia. The 1990 team made it back to the state championship in Columbia to battle Union High School. 

Both teams attended the same school building as students. This building was located near where the current building is today on Woodland Drive. 

Members of the 1959 team were quoted in stories saying it was the loudest and most energetic pep rally they had ever heard or seen. (Photo by Bobby Bell/ Bell Studio/The Lancaster Archive)
