sports I would say Harry Fry, academic Oscar Peters, Danny Calhoun, Miscal Baker. Best known character and story teller that everyone knew and loved was Mac McCarly. The best football team overall class of 72 that won the first state championship. Outlaws Kenny Wagner, and Bigfoot Williams. I know GCHS had two all Americans in the 60s but I don't recall their names. That's all I can think of. Course that's my opinion. Others will argue against it. You asked for names ill spare you the details as to why I think they should be listed.

Bucky Clabaugh is a legend under the Friday night lights as he roams the sidelines of the Big Blue Country. At 65 he still doesn't miss a beat.
