Orangeburg High School Football Team - 1970

Orangeburg High School Football Team, 1970: This is the last football team under the name of Orangeburg High School back in 1970. In 1971 Orangeburg High School and Wilkinson High School merged to become Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School. The head coach for this team was Dick Sheridan. Interestingly two of the members of this team became college head coaches in their future careers — Mike O’Cain, #11, and Buddy Pough, #73, as well as Coach Dick Sheridan. Many of the underclassmen in this picture were on the O-W state championship team the next year in 1971.
