THE FLATS – Two-time first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference football stars James Butler and Luke Manget, as well as Georgia Tech’s all-time leading shot-blocker in basketball, Alvin Jones, were among six former Yellow Jacket student-athletes who were officially inducted into the 2014 Georgia Tech Hall of Fame Friday night.
NCAA track champion Michael Johnson, former ACC volleyball player of the year Lynnette Moster and two-time Johnny Bench Award finalist Bryan Prince also are in the 2014 class honored in the annual induction dinner at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center.
In a special presentation, former women’s basketball and volleyball player Terri Caron, who was a member of Georgia Tech’s first intercollegiate teams in those sports, was formally inducted. She and two other members of her team were originally set to be honored along with the Hall of Fame Class of 1996 at Pioneers in Women’s Athletics at Tech, but for reasons unknown to this day, they were never formally honored. The 2014 Hall of Fame Class: Lynnette Moster, Luke Manget, Terri Caron, Michael Johnson, James Butler, Alvin Jones, Bryan Prince
“We are excited to welcome this 2014 class into the Georgia Tech Sports Hall of Fame,” said Tech director of athletics Mike Bobinski. “All of these student-athletes excelled individually in their own right, but they were also key contributors to the success of their teams, which achieved great heights during their time at Tech. It is a tremendous privilege each year to add a new class to our Hall of Fame and have these men and women back on campus.”
The inductees will also be honored during Tech’s football game against Duke on Saturday, Oct. 11, at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
