Two former record setting football players at DeKalb County High School recently sat down with local attorney Sarah Cripps with Ben Herman's Country Community Radio Show on WJLE to reflect on their playing days.
Mike Corley, a local attorney for Middle Tennessee Natural Gas, and Joey Reeder, DCHS educator and former Tiger baseball coach and assistant football coach both set single game rushing records at DCHS during the 1970's.
Corley, a tailback, rushed for 190 yards at Jackson County in October 1972. Four years later, Reeder, a fullback, broke Corley's record with 210 yards on 18 carries in the season opener at Nashville Joelton. Reeder's record was broken by Mike Kress during the 1980's. Corley, Reeder, and Kress played for former DCHS Football Coach Wayne Cantrell.
