Order of the Tiger Alumni Spotlight Logo

This month's "Order of the Tiger Spotlight" is on four Tiger alumni who reunited at Alumni Weekend! Cecil Holloway '57, Tommy Worrell '61, Wes Gideon '59, and Kenny Higginbotham '59 were stars of the football gridiron or basketball court back when the Trinity Tigers were referred to as the "Skyliners" and "Bengals." Holloway and dual-sport athlete Worrell were stars on the varsity basketball team, and Worrell, Gideon, and Higginbotham shared some standout years on the football team together. Cecil went on to an established career in business development, sales, and marketing, Wes was drafted by the Canadian Football League for the Montreal Alouettes and Toronto Argonauts, and Kenny was drafted by the NFL Green Bay Packers in the 26th round. But Tommy's story took quite a different turn after Trinity graduation, he became a Hollywood stuntman, gunslinger, and football coach. All four of these impressive Tigers are a testament to the opportunities made available by a Trinity experience and to the power of alumni weekend to bring old friends back together! Welcome home Cecil, Tommy, Wes, and Kenny!
