To the Editor:

I have spent many Friday nights watching Charlottesville play football and my children and grandchildren play in the band and cheerlead.

But the best night ever was this fall watching your Louisa fans, cheerleaders and especially your band. I so enjoyed the spirit of the team, parents and band. It brought back many fond memories of our “Thundering 39” in Fayetteville, Arkansas in 1963.
