The Rockwood community lost one of its greatest coaches with the passing of C.W. Pemberton Jr., who died Tuesday at 85.
Pemberton taught and coached football for a total of 38 years.
Along the way, Pemberton had stops in Vienna, Mo.; Gordonsville, Tenn.; the Homesteads in Crossville, South Harriman and Rockwood.
It was at Rockwood where Pemberton left his mark — coaching the Tigers to the 1976 TSSAA Class A State Championship.
