Last week at halftime of the Blacksburg High School's game versus Woodruff, the 2015 Hall Of Fame class was announced. This included all BHS sports of course. The most notable to many in this area is football though. Four of the six nominees did play football in Blacksburg, SC at some point. Cherokee County is a football county, as Gaffney, SC takes football as seriously as a small town high school can.
That being said, I believe the inductees (current and past) are deserving. Two are former teammates of mine. However, the big debate is why certain players haven't gotten in yet. It does mirror the NFL Hall of Fame, as some players get in early, while others seemingly wait decades, and may not live to see their enshrinement.
Finally, I have compiled my own top 25, which was difficult. I may later expand this to a top 50.
1. Doug Bolin
2. Mike Smith
3-25 (in no particular order)
Terrence "TO" Camp
Stanley "Dunnie" Watts II
Nesbitt "Banky" Black
Other notables: JR Martin, JP Martin, Billy Costner, Butch McAbee, Roland "Shine" Camp, Mark Dawkins
There have been many greats come through Blacksburg High School. Imagine them being on one team.
OK, who else should be on this list? Who honestly has no business being mentioned?
