The Middle Georgia State College (MGSC) basketball team, head coach Scott Moe and the athletic department will honor Perle Peacock at 7:15 p.m. on January 27, 2014 in Morris Gym on the Cochran campus for his years of service as clock keeper for the men’s and women’s basketball programs. For over 45 years Peacock held the duty of the clock keeper, ending his time on March 5, 2013 with a win in the first round of the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association (GCAA) playoffs.
Asking around, no one was able to provide the year that Peacock began working the clock only that it was during the tenure of Coach J.L. Padgett which ended in 1968 and resulted in the hiring of Coach Ben Rogers. Coach Rogers only knows that Peacock was already working the clock for the team when he arrived on campus to take over the men’s program. From historical records, it appears Coach Padgett arrived around 1963-64 giving a window between 1963 and 1968 that he would have begun running the clock for the program.
