Richard Petty, the King of NASCAR, visited the Hill on Saturday, September 7 to watch the Tigers Football team take down the Averett Cougars. Mr. Petty spent the day with the winners of a raffle that was held to raise money for the Hampden-Sydney Gridiron Club. The winners got to spend the morning tailgaiting with the King and also participated in the pre-game coin toss. This was not Mr. Petty's first visit to H-SC, he visited last year to see his grandson, sophomore Kyle Farlow '16, who plays quarterback for the Tigers.
