American Legion Post 129 sponsored a team from 1957 to 1959 and included players from Trion, Summerville, and Rising Fawn.  Bobby Brown states, "Many good players played on these teams.  Some of them are no longer with us.  With the competition between Summerville and Trion, it was great that they came together as a team."

Thanks to Bobby Brown for sharing the photograph and information.
