Update for 2014 -

 Larry McDonald ( 25 Oct 2013

Hoping this gets the ball rolling?

I had the opportunity to talk with Ed Weinberg last night. He graduated in 1975, was a two time All Europe linebacker, 185 lb wrestling champ (that is where I learned from!), placed in the shot put, and athlete of the year at Frankfurt. He attended West Point and lives in the DC area. He was one of the two influential players I mentioned in my speech. I heard the excitement in his voice about attending the event, which gets me excited. I also believe John Brophy is on board. Another great athlete (football, wrestling), who attended West Point and is a neurosurgeon in the Memphis Tennessee area. Both have very fond memories of their time at FAHS. Coach Drak could speak about them more! Two very solid student-athletes who had the accolades and went on to bigger careers.

I think I will back off a little. It is clear we do not have the activity of the board needed to grow rapidly. What I would suggest is that I put forth the nominations again looking for feedback. I don’t expect a great deal of response, but we will still have input of the coaches and a few of the board. As far as the rings, I spoke with the lady last night and she had a good idea. We could offer it as an option to the inductees, but at their cost. I know I would spring for one and I believe others would as well. That way we do not incur the cost of the rings. When I was speaking with my wife, she said something that made sense. She said I would have been just as happy receiving the framed certificate and spending time with teammates, friends and fellow eagles, so why put a financial burden on the HoF when it isn’t necessary. It was a good point. I will talk to the Balfour rep again and see if she can do a mock up that we could show and if there is interest, we can arrange something (without obligating the HoF). She mentioned she would kick back a percentage to the HoF for each ring sold.

I do have concerns about Coach Kirchner. He was in the hospital recently for an infection. I plan to go see him as soon as I can. Not sure he can make it to Atlanta, but instead of changing the venue to Boston, perhaps I can hook him up with some remote access and a way for him to attend in a virtual way? Any thoughts? He has contact list for all his players and family from their reunions, so we can use the list to contact all the nominees. Maybe if Coach Halley would like to visit Coach K with me?

Notice there is a female on the list. She was an amazing athlete and great person. Besides, from the list we have, we have two classes of inductees! This class has a very old school flavor, but it will be interesting to see alumni support from that era attending. I am pretty sure that we will have a good crowd.
