In case you didn't know, Renso "Rock" Perdoni, played junior college ball at Ferrum prior to beomcing an All-American defensive tackle at Georgia Tech. You might also remember the worst sports related airline crash in history, back on Nov 14, 1970, when a plane carrying 37 Marshall football players, 5 coaches, school officials, fans and crew crashed, and all 75 on board died. Well, there were 7 Marshall players who had played at Ferrum the prior season and were teammates of Rock. In this poignant article, Rock and others remember this tragedy 35 years later.
