Pat Biggs: “Playing Kick the Can, Rolley Bat, Hop Scotch, Tag and several other games until dark ...... AND not be afraid to be out at dark.”

Damon Pierce: “You know you’re from South Knoxville if you remember eating the best cheeseburger in town, and shooting pool on the worst pool table in town at Edleman’s.”
