Thomas Jefferson out of Richmond had some African American players and George Washington of Danville. Now I will say that was a bad experience down there because of the guys that we had on the team, Danville was very prejudiced or racist or whatever you want to call it, and they did not like the fact that we had a couple of players on the team. After the game was over, they -- the people came up and was rocking our bus, and we had to get out of there in a hurry. It was bad. Very bad. I think it was there, or it was in Roanoke. I can’t remember. Somebody threw and busted one of the windows on the bus, but I can’t remember which -- because we had an incident in Roanoke also, but I think that was just because we had beaten the local team. Well, we beat two of the local teams, but then the one team, Patrick Henry, we tied them twice and -- but they were really the only two incidents outside of anything, traveling as much as we did.
