knew Coach Howard, but were witness to the beginning of the tradition of the rock on the hill.

In addition to my diploma I'll always consider it a great honor to have been among that first group who touched the rock, then ran down the hill in 1967.

Whether an alumnus or a fan, if you're ever able to do so, stand atop the hill at the rock, look across DV, and imagine thousands of orange-clad standing, jumping, yelling and clapping fans along with Tiger Band blaring out "Tiger Rag," and you'll understand the thrills that many have experienced since that day in 1967.

I wouldn't swap those memories for anything!
