the jock workman i knew was a coach for trail.i have watched trail football for many years, no doubt tom pridemore was one of the best players from trail in the 70,s he had a great career with the alanta falcons. the other player i loved to watch on defense in the late 80,s was john dixon he played linebacker and had no fear to hit. i think he played a few years for concord college mountain lions?

Fellas I could be wrong, and I probably am. I played for the Ansted Higlanders in the 50ts. I know it was a long time ago. Don't know when the old School was moved to Trail but I do recall reading about this young man playing for the Ansted Highlanders, then going on to WVU. I was so proud of the boy when he became an NFL icon. Anyway, correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks

There was another young man that played on the team when Tom Pridemore played and he was ranked No.1 running back in the state for 2 years in a row. He led the highlanders to 2 state championships with his amazing abilities running the ball. They called him the "Rabbit". Roger Harrah i do believe was his name. That man could not be stopped and ran like a rabbit literally.

Pridemore and Harrah did not play for Trail, they played for Ansted. 1976 was the last year for Ansted football. Ansted had better players and teams but Trail has had a few good ones but it has been a while. John Dixon was one of my favorites. Of course Stevie Shuff was the best all around.

Cris pridemore was pretty good as well as his brother Steve. Shuffle was the best offensive player by far. The former coach Martin said Frankie Isaacs was the best player pound for pound but I'm not sure when Martin started coaching

What's sad, you have very few if any players under the current coaching staff. It is not the players but the lack of development because the coach has no idea how to develop talent.

Well when you look at the total lack of economy, jobs, and population between lookout and ansted, you really don't have a whole lot of talent to pick from at trail. Coaching and guidance may be part of the problem but its far from the whole problem. Trail has one of the smallest number of students attending the school in the state. Sure you might find extreme talent occasionally here and there throughout the years, but to find 22 good solidly talented players for a team can prove very difficult once you combine the number of students that can't seem to make the grades to even be eligible to play ball. Then factor in the kids that aren't even interested in playing ball. Your left with very, very little to choose from at that point. My graduating class didn't even have 100 students in it.

And then you have this crazy ass pill drug problem that infests many of these young kids minds because parents don't care or are on drugs themselves. Combine small towns with large drug problems and where do you expect to find a good football team?

Didn't go to school here, but Ansted High School had the best quarterback in Danny Cameron. He was on the 1976 championship team, and who could forget his partner on crime Roger Harrah!!!

I for one have seen many of great players come threw this school over the years and I'll list a few that I can remember off hand that I loved to watch play. Steve shuff,Shawn burrdett,Frankie isaacs,Tommy Ewing,Shawn Cooper,chris hall and Preston Caudill. If I left a few out feel free to add to this list of legends from trail that I think should be recognized for what they achieved while at the school

Chris Horrocks and Eric McClung were really good, they helped lead Trail to a couple state championships.
All 3 of the Cauldill boys were good (B.J, Preston and Logan).
RC Ellis was decent and so was Aaron White.
Luke Morehead was one of the best that I saw he should have been picked up by a college instead of going into the air force.
