FINCASTLE (WSLS 10 SPORTS) - It's Ferrum football's 'Black Hat' reunion weekend.  The proud program welcomes back former players and coaches from glory years gone by to the present.   Ferrum dominated the National Junior College football scene,

winning four national titles under legendary coach Hank Norton.   The Hall of Famer was on hand Friday to play host for the annual golf tournament in his name and to talk about seeing some familiar faces...all these years later.

"Well this is a very nice weekend because they come together they played together years ago and don't get to see each other as much. It's wonderful for me and them that's the big thing all of us are for Ferrum," explains Norton.

Saturday the reunion includes the Summer tailgate at the Hank Norton Center and WB Adams stadium, and a chance to meet new Panthers coach Rob Grande and his staff.
