  • High Schools that produced multiple T&F Hall of Famers

    Name at least two high schools that have two different individuals each in the T&F Hall of Fame. In one case both are athletes and in the other one was a coach & one was an athlete.

      guess on top of a guess is that one of the Hoover/Glendales was Frank Wykoff.

        Didn't East Tech of Cleveland produce three Hall of Famers?

              Yes one of the schools was East Technical in Cleveland, OH with three hall of famers: Jessie Owens, Harrison Dillard & Dave Albriton.

              Just so we don't prolong the agony the second school was North Phoenix High with athlete Dallas Long and his coach Vern Wolfe. Who was the other interscholastic record holder that Vern Wolfe coached at North Phoenix High?

                You can add Glendale (CA), with Frank Wykoff and Dwight Stones. Vern Wolfe coached two other record holders, Jim Brewer (PV) and Karl Johnstone (DT).

                    Add Mercersburg Academy with Ted Meredith '12 and Charlie Moore '47 who both attended as high school students, not post-grads. Both were coached by Jimmy Curran, who ought to be in the H/F.

                    Other OG gold medalists coached by Curran at M'burg were Allen Woodring and Bill Carr (another who ought to be in the H/F.)

                      Is Jenkins in the HOF ? Doubtful.

                        Steve,

                        Charlie Jenkins IS in the T&F Hall of Fame.

                          well, I just wondered. No knock on him or maybe some others, and I suppose winning an OG indiv. gold might be good enough, but it should not be an automatic ticket of admission IMHO.

                            I'm probably belaboring this but I was surprised that Charlie Jenkins is in there. Why not so many others then too such as Biffle, Remigino, Stulce, DeLoach,Joyner(Al), just to name some non superstars that won OG golds ?

                              There shouldn't be a question of who is and who isn't in the HOF. It's all on the web. http://www.usatf.org/athletes/hof/
