Russellville Cyclones, there's power in that name

That tells of every team member's might

We'll play well and hard throughout the game

And always keep our goals in sight.

The Cyclones are better than all the rest,

On field, on court or track,

So let's get out there and do our best to bring a victory back.

Our current fight song was written in 1974 by a RHS student, David Franks. Franks was a three-year all-state horn player from 1973-1975. The hand written original copy of his words and music is framed and hanging in the small band room at RHS.
