Until about 1970, the clock operator at Buddy Bufford Field was situated on a metal platform above the home bench, on one of the light poles that stood between the field and the bleachers. The announced was on the top row of the stands. The "white" press box improved both those situations.
The Red Devils have played in 22 state title games since 1960.
