After talking with seven people, including former New Hanover County Public Schools Athletic Director Joe Miller, the consensus is when Sunset Junior High School was torn down the sports trophies are believed to have been thrown away.
And most people, however, I spoke with were unaware Sunset was torn down.
I do know Roman Gabriel played there and mentioned to me recently his first football coach the late Bill Billings was one of the best coaches he ever had and put him nearly on par with the legendary Leon Brogden.
Gabriel was a 155-pound tight end as an eighth-grader. He won trophies and so did his teammates, but had no idea where they went.
