CCCHS hosted a special pep rally on Friday to stress the importance of the state’s Move Over Law and to remember beloved assistant football coach JR Rogers.
Rogers, who also worked as a Tennessee Department of Transportation Help Truck driver, died in December after being hit by a motorist on Interstate 40 in Nashville while he helped a driver change a flat tire.
During the pep rally, Cheatham County School Resource Officer Tony Pierce discussed the Move Over Law.
A change in the state law went into effect in July as all motorists have to move over for anyone with their hazard lights on, including civilian drivers.
At the end of the pep rally, a drawing was held from all the signed pledge cards. The winner was Tyler Rich, who won a free pass to all home sporting events this season.
For each home game this season, one CCCHS player has been chosen to wear No. 31, Rogers’ number from his playing days with the Cubs.
The schedule includes: Ray Ray Sweat, Aug. 18, Hunters Lane; Landon Barnes, Aug. 25, Creek Wood; Walker Bunce, Sept. 15, Harpeth; Jorden Hoffman, Oct. 6, Greenbrier; and Shawn Singleton, Oct. 20, Stewart County.
