Former President Richard Nixon once said, (according to news reports) that Coach Boone saved the city of Alexandria.  Others had similar opinions.  Per WJLA:

"I think that Coach Boone, I would say he's one of the pioneers that helped us overcome segregation," "I think that his legacy will live on because if it weren't for that championship team, I mean where would we be today?"
