Future NFL Hall of Famer Brian Dawkins of Clemson and USC’s Zam Fredrick, who led college basketball in scoring highlight the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame’s Class of 2014.
The Class of 2014 also consists of SC State football standout Edwin Bailey, South Carolina pitcher Randy Martz, Olympian Monique Hennagan, state golf legend Happ Lathrop, Newberry basketball standout Carl Short and Clemson quarterback Rodney Williams.
The eight individuals will be enshrined with the state’s highest athletic honor on May 12 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. Tickets (table of eight for $500) and program sponsorships may be purchased by calling the SCAHOF office at 803/779-0905. The affair, which includes a reception and dinner, begins at 5:30 p.m.
In addition to the inductees donning of the symbolic blue jackets, the Bobby Richardson Sportsmanship Award recipient will also be recognized. The event, which includes a host of returning past inductees, is the largest annual celebration of Palmetto State sports stars under one roof. Legendary South Carolina State coach and 2008 SCAHOF President Willie Jeffries, known for his witticism, will again preside over the banquet as master of ceremonies along with Executive Director Ephraim Ulmer and this year’s president, Kay Fortune of Columbia.
