I'm guessing Norman Nash is from the same Nash family that's been around Gwinnett forever. Probably get no jail time like Kevin Kenerly.

You remember the RR tracks formed a jump of sorts on main street? Had to be careful because the police station was within sight of them.

Follow those same tracks toward Lawrenceville where they cross Patterson Rd. In high school, we may or may not have been able to get an early '90s Pontiac Grand Prix airborne a few times.

Hitting those tracks at anything over 60 mph produced splendid air time.

If you cross 29 on Pleasant Hill it becomes Lester road, which also has a train track “jump”. I was not nice to my suspension there either.

I grew up off of River Drive at the end of Lester. Jumped those MANY times. Also Oak Road crossing Five Forks Trickum. Was always running late trying to get to Brookwood HS. I could usually get air in my '78 Cordoba

I think Phil Niekro lived in that subdivision next to FFMS, and Dale Murphy lived in one across River Drive, but that was late 70s.

Facing the middle school to the right was Riverwoods Subdivision.

Home of all 57 of the Gambini kids.

Between myself, my sisters and brothers there was one of us at Brookwood continuously from 1987-2000.

Y'all should have a designated parking spot at BHS with that much time there.

I was the 3rd class to graduate from Brookwood. My sisters both graduated from Parkview. School redistricting was fun. I went to 3 elementary schools, 3 middle schools and two high schools. I only moved one time during all of that. FFMS opened after Christmas break when I was in 7th grade. We got to be the first ones to break the rules there as well as Brookwood. Not sure if Mr. Klaudt was at FFMS when you went there, but his brother lives in my neighborhood.

Your time there predates mine. I was at FFMS in the 90-92 time frame.  Only teacher I recall was Mr. Willard, a history teacher. I remember him talking about the fragging of officers in Vietnam.

I got tossed from FFMS a couple times....was worth it.
