1985 State Champs head homecoming parade

1985 State Champs
Members of the 1985 Class A state champion Rocket football team will be honorary grand marshals for Thursday's Homecoming Parade in Marion.

The football team was 13-1 in 1985, winning Crittenden County's football state title under coach Pat Gates. Players are celebrating the 30-year anniversary of that season.

Players, cheerleaders, coaches, managers and other members of that team should begin assembling after 4 p.m., on West Elm Street near the intersection of Main Street. The 1985 team will lead the parade, right behind the Boy Scouts Color Guard.

The parade begins at 5 p.m.
