The Fairview Yellowjackets first flew out of their hive and onto the football field at its current location in 1982.
But before that, the high school was called West High, and was founded in 1956. In those last years before moving, they saw little success on the field- going 1-5 in 1974, 4-6 in 1975, 1-10 in 1976, 1-9 in 1977 and 6-4 in 1978.
Despite the tough seasons, though, the Fairview football tradition was born.
Looking back at yearbooks from those rough early years shows the faces, triumphs and failures of the era.
