The voice of the Bulldogs
Dennis Sanders sits on the 50-yard line at the Brickyard. This line represents a place of calm and security for Sanders. When he was running for district attorney, he sat here to collect his thoughts on election night.
It was 1984.
Thomson was playing Marist for the state championship. Both teams were undefeated, and Marist was lead by a huge quarterback who had been accepted to play at Notre Dame and an all-state linebacker named Salisbury. Thomson had to play at Marist, and Thomson was the definite underdog.
Dennis Sanders had just been sworn in as district attorney the night before. When he arrived at the game, the entire visitors’ side was completely full of Thomson fans. Thomson ended up upsetting Marist, creating a game Sanders will never forget.
