Isaiah Fisher (4) carries the balll for Pisgah in Friday’s 23-20 overtime win over Tuscola.

Sharon Case of Canton was the winner of Friday’s 50-50 raffle drawing at the Pisgah-Tuscola football game.

Her prize?

Surely the largest amount that has ever been given away in such a local drawing — $19,630.

For the first time in the Haywood County rivalry’s 53-game history, the home team (Pisgah) accepted credit and debit cards for those wishing to buy raffle tickets.

The Pisgah Booster Club raised $23,014 through the tickets and sale of merchandise Friday.

A helicopter flown by two Vietnam veterans delivered the game ball.

Pisgah press box attendant Buddy Ledford has been to all 53 Pisgah-Tuscola games since the schools started playing in 1966 and said that Friday’s crowd – estimated at approximately 13,000 — was the largest he has ever witnessed.
