Spending some quality time in Quicksburg, Va. with the Generals

Welcome to downtown Quicksburg, Va.

I spent the evening sitting with both Jeff Burner and Jason Lutz watching the game. The two were kind enough to continue to give me a History lesson about Stonewall. Today that included the story about Mr. Hines of the famed Hines Block sitting area in the Generals gym.
Mr. Jim Hines was a teacher at the Quicksburg school for 37 years until his recent retirement.
When the student body voted on a namesake for the often packed sitting area in the gym, they selected Mr. Hines.
37 years in the business- you can only imagine the number of lives this amazing man changed for the better.

Mr. & Mrs. Burner always on hand to support the Generals.

The final score of the contest between Stonewall Jackson and the visiting Flames of Eastern Mennonite High School. Below you see the clock with 6 seconds remaining and it turned out to be a long 6 seconds for the home fans.
