1960 James Kenan QB Recalls Glory Days

Not since 1960 have the Tigers of James Kenan High School in Duplin County won a state football title. That could all change Saturday.

On Thursday, students showed their support for the number 1 team in their hearts. And along with them came the community support that rang out from a well know barbeque pit called Blands. That's where we caught up with the 1960 starting quarterback Jimmy Dixon. He says a lot has changed since then, but the support from Duplin County residents hasn't changed a bit.

Across town at the Piggly Wiggly, there were also signs showing support for the Tigers. The Tigers take on West Montgomery Saturday night in Chapel Hill.
