Mr. Gooden was truly a genuine great man.
As I reminisce, I have always thought in some sort of way he probably saved me from making the mistake of my life when I was thinking about giving up on school.
In 1976 I was a perfect know-it-all teenager and thought the world was here every bit to cater to me.
I remember telling Mr. Gooden – “I Quit!”
As I was getting ready to walk out the door… he said calmly… since you quit and now you really have nothing to do today, then you got time to sit and talk awhile. Short story is... I decided it was better to just suck it up and behave.
I believe that, at that time, had he not cared and said something, I would have kept on walking.
Yes, I was a receiver on his back swing as well and honestly, I still believe I deserved every bit of what I got.

R.I.P. Mr. Gooden

He was a good friend of my Dad's. He was my favorite teacher..good ole Tennessee history class. Coach Gooden was a class act and will be missed by many as he touched many lives and molded many students into the succesful people they are today. R.I.P.

I spent many hours as a child playing ball in Mr. Goodens yard. Had some great times there and he always made me feel welcome. Sorry for your loss, Mark, Mike and Susan.

I can still see coach Gooden out there in that hot August sun at the old Hixson Junior High School practice field in the early 1960s. All the players loved to play for Coach Gooden and Coach Mitchem. Maybe we will all get a chance to play for them again. Someday. Jim Ashley
