Associated Press Sports Writer
The Texas High School Coaches
Assn, is considering a change in
its proposed Hall of Fame plan.
Even the name would be changed
■—it would be Hall of Honor and
only coaches would be given
It was first anticipated that
both athletes and coaches would
come under the scope of the Hall
and this seems to be the way it
should be handled.
In no other way could boys who
attained their athletic glory only
in high school be honored. The
Texas Sports Hall of Fame as now
conducted by the Texas Sports
Writers is designed to award
those who reached national glory
and rightfully so.
That was the reason some sports
writers, notably Putt Powell of
Amarillo, wanted a high school
hall of fame because none of. the
athletes and few of the coaches
ever could gain the big Hall of
Fame since their efforts were con
cerned primarily at the state level.
Should Be in Hall of Fame
There are many coaches who
should be voted into the Hall of
Honor but there are many athletes
who also should attain places.
Consider Leo Baldwin, the great
est all-around athlete Texas ever
knew. He did such things as win
the state track meet single-handed,
score all the points for his team
in a football season, star in bas
ketball and play baseball so well
that he received a league offer of
$2,000. In those days this kind
of money was considered quite
Baldwin never starred in col
lege but his feats in high school
should entitle him to a place in
any Hall of Fame.
Then there was Boody Johnson,
Waco’s great football player of
the twenties. He always will be
considered the finest gridder in
Texas high school annals. He broke
his leg playing baseball and never
could overcome the handicap of a
trick knee in college athletics.
Individuals Deserve Recognition
Johnson won the state champion
ship for Waco. He scored all the
points, with a touchdown and con
version and two field goals. The
field goals, both by drop kicks,
came in the final minutes to over
come a 10-7 Abilene lead. Waco
Johnson’s feats were legend. He
often drop-kicked field goals 50
yards. He was a great runner,
a great blocker and a fine defens
Through the years other great
high school athletes come to mind
in thinking about the Hall of
Fame. Amarillo’s Bob Clesson,
Masonic. Home’s Scott McCall, Oak
Cliff’s Roy Lumpkin, Sugar Land’s
Kenneth Hall, Sherman’s Ralph
Welch, Greenville’s Bert Marshall
—the list is long and impressive.
The High School Hall of Honor
should include the athletes as well
as the coaches.
