This week’s Friday night lights is the last program I have for the 1972 Oak Hill High School football season. It is their homecoming. They are battling Mount Hope e Little Brown Jug. If the newspaper stats are correct, this was the 54th Little Brown Jug game. Oak Hill won 31, Mount Hope won 16 and there were 7 tie games. It is also Mount Hope’s Homecoming. In the middle of the program was a pull out page that noted the homecoming courts for each team. I am mad at the papers for not having a write up for the homecoming aspect of the game.
Oak Hill finished their season with only 2 wins and 8 losses.

It was the Homecoming for both Oak Hill and Mount Hope. There was an insert in this program that included the Homecoming Courts for each school:
