Small Town Pride - WHS Football!

In 1969, Wellington High School won it's first State Football Championship. A member of that squad, John Fisk (aka Robbie) was back in Wellington a few years ago and at that time he shared a song he had written about the first championship in '69 called "SMALL TOWN PRIDE"! We put some current pics at that time with it -  so it's time to fire that song up again as we head into Week #2 of district play this Friday with Mulvane.
