There’s a song we all know
That will make your troubles go
As the Generals go marching along
Take that ball
Down that line
Score a touchdown every time
As the Generals go marching along

For its high high hee
In the field of victory
Shout out your colors loud and strong -


For where e’er we go
You will always know
As the Generals go marching along-fight!

As the Generals go marching along G-E-N-E-R-A-L-S, Generals! 




Douglas A. Shively

Doug Shively was born and raised in Lexington where his father, Bernie Shively was athletic director at University of Kentucky from 1938 until his death in 1967.   His Mother taught school at Lafayette which started Doug’s career path.  He graduated in 1955 after serving as President of his Sophomore and Junior class, Student Council President and Letterman Club President.

     While at Lafayette, Doug was an outstanding athlete lettering in Football, Basketball, Track and Baseball.  With this great ability comes many awards.  They include the Yale Cup, Josten Outstanding Athlete, and Most Valuable High School Athlete.

      Doug went on to pursue his college football career at UK by lettering 3 years and was Co-Captain his Senior Year.  He also managed to play Baseball and lettered in that sport as well.  He graduated from UK in 1959 .

      Shively went on to serve as assistant coach at Va. Tech, UK, and Clemson.  Leaving the college level he made a mark in the AFL by assisting the Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and San Diego Charges.  In 1983 he took the Head Coach position with the Arizona Wrangles in Phoenix.

     Doug lives in Georgia and has retired, but manages to do volunteer work with Meals on Wheels and is very involved with his church activities.  For his relaxation, he plays a little golf and if he could, he would receive a letter in that sport as well.
