Averett football coach and Radford High School graduate Cleive Adams headlines the new class of the Ferrum College hall of fame.
Adams, the uncle of NBA star Stephen Curry, played football for Ferrum in the late 1980s. He later became a Ferrum assistant coach.
The five-member class was announced Tuesday. They will be inducted at a Sept. 21 luncheon prior to Ferrum’s home football game that day with the Averett team coached by Adams.
The other members of the class are former men’s basketball player Quincy Quick; former soccer and lacrosse standout Carrie Conques; former cross-country standout Julie Burton Stevens; and former football and baseball player Mason Lockridge.
• Washington and Lee will hold its hall of fame induction ceremony Friday night.
The new class, which will be introduced at halftime of Saturday’s home football game, includes former men’s swimming All-American Alex Sweet, who won the 2008 NCAA title in the 50 freestyle; former field hockey and lacrosse standout Kitt Murphy Zuk; former basketball and track and field standout Sandra Holmes; the late men’s soccer, men’s cross country and men’s track and field coach Norm Lord; and the 1973 men’s lacrosse team, which reached the NCAA Division I semifinals.
