Henry County High School football fans will have more to celebrate Friday than just the team’s appearance in the first playoff game of the year.

It’s also the night the field at Patriot Stadium will be named for Bill Hudson and the fieldhouse will be named for James M. Counce during halftime of the playoff game against Memphis Ridgeway.

Christy Thompson, secretary for the Henry County School System, said a presentation and dedication will occur at the game, officially bestowing the new names.

She said signage would be placed at a later date.

The Henry County Board of Education voted to dedicate the field and fieldhouse to Hudson and Counce, respectively, at its June 13 meeting.

The game against Ridgeway kicks off at 7 p.m. For a preview of the game, see Page 5.
