Tigers' Tragedy

December 13, 1983

Memphis State University football coach Rex Dockery, assistant coach Chris Faros, and player Charles Greenhill were killed when their small plane crashed on a rainy, foggy night near Lawrenceburg, Tenn. Pilot Glenn Jones, a member of the Highland Hundred boosters club who often flew coaches on business trips, was also killed.

One witness told the newspaper:

It circled three times and then I heard a loud thump.
