THE OAK RIDGE FULSOME RIVALRY IS FIERCE. SO WHEN ATTRIBUTE TO THE FORMER OAK RIDGE VOCAL COACH WAS PAINTED OVER WITH THE OPPOSING TEAMS LOCAL, IT WAS A CALL FOR A TIMEOUT. THAT SOMEBODY WOULD DO THAT, IS STUPID. CLARK DIED IN 2019 WITH COMPLICATIONS TO PNEUMONIA. HE WAS A LOVING FATHER AND A MENTOR TO MANY ON AND OFF THE FIELD. HE WAS JUST A PHENOMENAL INDIVIDUAL. HE’S A GUY, WHEN YOU TALK TO TO HIM, HE TALKED TO YOU. MICKEY LEFT A LASTING IMPRESSION ON THE COMMUNITY, THAT’S MY FRIDAY MORNING WHEN STUDENTS WERE AT THE ROCKS AND LEARNED THAT THEY WERE PAINTED OVER, THEY TOOK ACTION. ALL OF OUR CLASS WAS SO DISAPPOINTED THAT OUR NAME WAS ON A ROCK, WE SAID WE CAN’T HAVE THAT, WE NEED TO MAKE IT RIGHT. THEY TEAMED UP WITH OAK RIDGE STUDENTS. IT’S THE COMMUNITY COMING TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD. BY EARLY FRIDAY AFTERNOON THE TEAMS MADE IT RIGHT, CLARK’S WIDOW, A FULSOME HIGH GRADUATE HERSELF HEARD ABOUT IT BEFORE THE PAINT EVEN DRIED. WE LITERALLY CUTTING BE DOING IT WITHOUT EVERYBODY SUPPORT. FROM A SCHOLARSHIP FUND TO A BLACKOUT OF HIS T-SHIRTS DURING THE GAME, IT’S SOMETHING THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY IS PROUD OF. IT’S GREAT, IT SHOWS COMMUNITY
