On a recent visit to Gaffney’s Reservation, I told my son, Jackson, this was my first visit to this Gaffney High football field.
He asked me about the old Reservation, Gaffney’s former football field. Of course, I told him about the famed “Gaffney tunnel,” the passage through the old stadium to the field. I experienced the tunnel as a player and fan.
“One thing you wanted to do was make sure you had your helmets on tight when you ran through the tunnel,” I told him.
