Keith McAlister Featured In Article

I really enjoyed the article in today’s State about former USC and professional football standout Ira Hillary and how our Assistant Superintendent Keith McAlister got Ira out for football when Keith was coaching at Strom Thurmond High School in the late 1970s.  I particularly enjoyed how Keith scheduled Aiken High School to play Strom Thurmond when William “The Refrigerator” Perry, who later starred for Clemson and the Chicago Bears, was playing at Aiken so that the college scouts coming to see William Perry would see Ira Hillary.  Great story!
