I wrote a book about the origin and development of intercollegiate athletics at Carson-Newman College from 1851 to 1974 which was based on my dissertation at the University of Georgia. It has been thirty eight years since the first book was completed (1974). It had 455 pages of everything from early history to the epic that told the story of those first 123 years. This second edition will continue to show the tradition and development of Carson-Newman athletics from 1975 to 2012. The information and pictures came from Carson-Newman Year Books (2007 was the last year for publication). Some years there was no information and other years some sports were not covered. I then used The Orange & Blue, the school newspaper. Beginning in 2008 I had to rely on The Orange and Blue along with Carson-Newman's website for information. The Sports Release was used to get awards received at the Eagle Club/All-Sports Banquet in the spring. I have included the Preface from the first book as that hasn't changed in the last 38 years...

The idea for the book, IT GETS FOGGY AT MOSSY CHEEK, was born in 1969. In order to complete my Doctorate at the University of Georgia I had to write a dissertation. I did not want to select a subject that would not have any meaning or future value. So many people write on something like "How Many Push-Ups a Rat Can Do" and it is placed in File 13 never to be heard from again. I love history. The events that have taken place in the past help mold our future. What made great people tick helps us find ourselves and improve our own lives. In light of this, I decided to do a historical study involving the Origin and Development of Carson-Newman College Athletics since 1851. Except for changing the order of certain chapters and the addition of numerous pictures the actual dissertation has stayed the same to my regret. I wanted very much to write and tell events in a more creative way but lack of time and dissertation style would not permit. Many athletes, teams and events have probably been left out but this was not intentional I assure you.

In 1908 baseball was the only game that mattered in the South. With no major league team in the region, rivalries between Southern Association cities such as Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, and New Orleans were heated. This season, however, no city was as baseball-crazed as Nashville, whose Vols had been league doormat in 1907. After an unpromising start, the Nashville club clawed its way into contention during the month of July, rising into the upper division, then into a battle for first. Local interest intensified, as the competitive fire of Nashville fans was stoked by sharp-tongued columnist Grantland Rice and the city’s three daily newspapers. By the time the Vols met the New Orleans Pelicans for a season-ending series, and the championship, the city was gripped by a pennant fever that shut down the commercial district. Nearly 13,000 people thronged the Nashville ballpark, Sulphur Dell, for the third and deciding contest. What they saw was described by Rice as “the greatest game ever played in Dixie.”

Welcome to Mossy Creek. We’re small and easy-going with a lot of community pride and camaraderie. What we don’t have a lot of is crime. A close-knit laid-back little borough, so close to the southern border of Pennsylvania we’re almost in West Virginia. Townsfolk like to say: “We’re south enough to lend credence to our slight drawl, but sufficiently north of the Mason-Dixon to be ‘damn Yankees’.” None of us were prepared for murder … especially involving a teenager.

As a young girl, Sylvia Hatchell longed to play little league baseball and, later, high-school basketball, but both were closed to her because she was a girl. In college, her world shifted when she discovered a passion for coaching that would lead her to become a Naismith Hall of Fame coach of women's basketball at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In this book, Coach Hatchell's life story unfolds against the backdrop of Title IX and women's struggle for equal opportunities in athletics. She celebrates triumphs (such as winning the 1994 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Tournament) and weathers sadness and failure (such as the loss of her parents, surviving cancer, and being forced to resign from her dream job in 2019).

The Horn family, from the Foggy Bottom community on the banks of the Neches River in Deep East Texas, are a proud family. They are descendants of some of the earliest settlers in this very remote area. Foggy Bottom folks are known to be clannish and the Horns are viewed as a backwoods clan by the residents of the nearby town, Pine Hill. Anthony Hall, the bankers son, from Pine Hill is in love with Beth Horn, the daughter of the most prominent family in Foggy Bottom. Beth is a brilliant and vivacious young lady who is a premed student at the University of Texas, but the residents of Pine Hill still see her as that little Fog Head kid who sold peas from the Horn pea patch.. The prejudice on both sides of the river creates serious problems especially between the Pine Hills mayors son, Bobby Dodd and Thomas Horn. A story of trials, faith, integrity and perseverance unfolds as each of the Horn family tries to merge with their prejudiced laden environment.
