Blue Devils To Honor Former All-Americans At Halftime Of Friday Night’s Football Game


During Friday night’s game against Franklin, the Brevard High School Blue Devil Club will honor the three football players who were named All Americans in 1958 and 1960.

Cecil Lowery and Dr. Jerry Cabe made the selection in 1958, with Denny Landreth being honored in 1960.

Lowery and Cabe played in the All American Game in Baton Rouge, La. during the 1958 season.

They also played in the All-Star game in Hershey, Penn. that same year.

Lowery also played in the Shrine Bowl.

Lowery, the only living member of the trio, is expected to attend Friday night’s festivities.

Landreth, number 40, was selected in 1960 and was part of the Blue Devil team to win the state championship that season. He starred on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.

Landreth played in the All American game in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. and in the East-West All-Star game.

Landreth attended the University of Tennessee. He recently passed away on Aug. 21 in East Flat Rock. He was a long-time youth sports coach and avid softball player.

Cabe, number 60, was co-captain with Lowery and was also an all-academic player. He attended UNC-Chapel Hill and became a beloved dentist in Brevard.

The trio are the only three players to have their jerseys retired by the Blue Devils. Their replica jerseys are on display along with photos and All America certificates in Brevard High School’s main lobby.

A plaque will be presented to Lowery and members of Cabe’s and Landreth’s families this Friday.
