DHS FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME BANQUET SET FOR APRIL 23
The 2006 Dublin High School AA State Championship team will be one of 14 honorees inducted into the 2016 class of the Dublin Touchdown Club Football Hall of Fame.
Slated for 6 p.m. on April 23 at Dublin Country Club, the induction ceremony, which has previously honored college and NFL stars Ron Rogers and Erik Walden, will celebrate 11 players across almost a century, one coach, one supporter and one team. The ceremony will include heavy hors d’oeuvres.
Organizers are currently looking for assistance in locating players to ensure all honorees, or family representatives, can be recognized at the ceremony. Cost to attend is $30 per person (Inductees and one guest are admitted free of charge). For more information, or to help put organizers in contact with honorees, please call Bill Perry at 478-697-6728 or DHS Football Coach Roger Holmes at 478-353-8040, or go to the Dublin City Schools Facebook page or dublincityschools.us.
“We will honor players from as far back as 1919 up to the 2000s,” said organizer and Dublin City Board of Education member Bill Perry. “In some cases, due to time and distance, we have lost touch with some of our honorees. We’d love for people to help us reconnect with these people, or to share stories on our social media we will in turn share at our ceremony.”
