ATLANTA – Olympic gold medal hurdler Derrick Adkins and four-time all-America golfer David Duval head a group of six former Georgia Tech student-athletes who will be inducted into the Tech Athletic Hall of Fame, Nov. 14 at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
Tickets for the induction dinner are on sale for $50, and can be ordered by calling Barb Dockweiler in the Alexander-Tharpe Fund office at 404-894-6124. The black-tie optional event begins with a reception at 7 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m., and the induction ceremony. Tables of 10 can be purchased for $500.
Joining Adkins and Duval are two members of the Yellow Jackets’ 1990 National Championship football team, all-Atlantic Coast Conference quarterback Shawn Jones and all-America kicker Scott Sisson, as well as six-time track all-American Nelrae Pasha Ali and 1982 football team captain David Lutz.
Three of the inductees, Adkins, Duval and Pasha Ali, were named last year to the Atlantic Coast Conference’s 50th Anniversary teams in their respective sports.
