Hero: James "Jip" Smalley

August 05, 2002

James "Jip" Smalley was a staunch supporter of the Red Devil football program, as evidenced by his chain-carrying duties for 40 years.

Mr. "Jip" also boostered the program in many other ways, including sponsorships from his Smalley Furniture Company that was a landmark at the monument for many years. In his later years he opened "Jip's Sit-A-Spell" on Peachtree Street, a unique meeting place to see Red Devil memorabilia and talk with townsfolk about escapades from years ago.
