Romp and circumstance prevailed Friday night at Zephyrhills' Bulldog Stadium.
Moments before the current team's 63-0 homecoming embarrassment of Hudson, dozens of former ZHS players and coaches gathered at midfield for a ceremony to formally name the field in honor of former Bulldogs coach Tom Fisher.
The winningest coach in program history (124-86), Fisher attended the event, and watched the unveiling of a "Tom Fisher Field" sign atop the south end zone scoreboard.
Fisher, who coached ZHS for 20 seasons (1989-2008), guided the Bulldogs to 13 winning seasons and two playoff triumphs. One of his players — two-way tackle Ryan Pickett — reached the NFL. Several others earned Division I scholarships including Brett Cimorelli (FSU), Bryan Thomas (Florida) and Booker Pickett (Miami).
Thomas is ZHS' defensive coordinator; current Bulldogs coach Nick Carroll also played for Fisher.
