Ruben Brown has been called many things over the course of his career; Hilltopper, Panther, Bill, Bear, and this April he adds Virginia Sports Hall of Famer to that list.
April 5-6 in Town Center of Virginia Beach we honor Brown along with the rest of the Class of 2019, for #2019InductionWeekend. The final whistle has blown for tickets to the Induction Ceremony, but there is still time left on the clock for the VIP Reception and Breakfast with Champions.
Let’s be the lead blocker for Ruben and show him how Virginia celebrates athletics!
In the mid 1980’s a small regional conference formed in Virginia and the Carolina’s that would create drama and rivalries for years to come. That conference, Colonial Athletic Association, was led by one man for 31-years. Tom Yeager meant so much, for so long, to so many Virginia institutions and this April Virginia honors him with induction into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame.
Induction Ceremony tickets are no longer available, but you can join us as we celebrate Yeager at the VIP Reception, April 5, and Breakfast with Champions, April 6. Ask him his favorite CAA moment, which rivalry was the best? Who would win, 2006 George Mason or 2011 VCU?
Old Dominion University Monarchs! It’s a wonderful occurrence to have one of your own gain selection to the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame, its almost unheard of to have two enter as part of the same class. It just so happens that in less than 3-weeks two Monarchs will enter the Hall together.
Join the Hall of Fame, April 5-6, to celebrate the accomplishments of Wendy Larry and Debbie White, and the rest of the Class of 2019. Ceremony tickets are no longer available but VIP Reception and Breakfast with Champion spots still remain, so lets party like its 2019 and give them the recognition they deserve!

March 16th was a very important day in the history of the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame. 4 of our inductees share a birthday.
Walker Gillette, a 1990 inductee, and former All-American wide receiver for Richmond Spiders Football. Gillette caught 158 passes while at Richmond, many of those were from upcoming Class of 2019 inductee, Buster O'Brien. Gillette is the Richmond Athletics Hall of Fame, as well as the Citrus Bowl Hall of Fame.
Kelly James Precourt, a 2008 inductee, led ODU Field Hockey to three NCAA national championships (1988-90-92). She was a two-time All-American, and was also given the coveted Honda-Broderick Award in 1992, which honors the Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year.
Posthumously, we celebrate Junius Kellogg ('90) and Garrard Ramsey ('74), who were also born on this date.
Kellogg, began playing sports for I.C. Norcom High School. After college he joined the Army, and upon discharge played basketball for Manhattan College, where he helped authorities bring down a point shaving scandal that rocked College basketball. After being injured in a car accident, he focused his attention on the National Wheelchair Basketball Association, and his team the Pan Am Jets became a powerhouse. Kellogg passed away in 1998.
Garrard Ramsey, a Knoxville, TN native, enjoyed great success playing football for William & Mary. While playing for William & Mary Tribe Football, he was named All-Southern guard three years and All-American in 1942. Upon graduation, Ramsey was picked to be on the state of Virginia’s all-time college team. Ramsey then went on to a very fruitful professional career, appearing in 6 NFL Championships as a player and Coach. He passed away in 2007.
Old Dominion Women's Basketball CAA Champs, has a nice "ring" to it. 2019 Inductee, Wendy Larry, loved it so much, she did it 17-times...IN A ROW! From 1992-2008, there was no one who did it better. For that and many other reasons, Larry will be inducted into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame this coming April.
Tickets to the Induction Ceremony are extremely limited, but there are two other events, April 5-6, for fans of Old Dominion University Athletics, and sports fans in general to celebrate her accomplishments, and the rest of the Class of 2019.

Happy Birthday to 2013 Virginia Sports Hall of Fame inductee, Cornell Brown. The E.C. Glass High School alum, was a force for Virginia Tech Football from 1993-1996. Brown, a starter all 4 years, led the Hokies to a 37-11 overall record, four-straight bowl games and a pair of BIG EAST Conference championships during that span. The 1996 1st Team All-American, is 2nd on the all-time VT sack list (behind another Hall of Famer, Bruce Smith), with 36 career sacks.
Good 🏈 genes run in the family. Brown's brother, Ruben, will be inducted into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame this coming April.
Cornell Brown, a native of Lynchburg, VA and graduate of Virginia Tech, is considered by many to be the first high-profile recruit of the Frank Beamer era.

As a 501 c 3 non-profit, we wouldn't be able to put on our numerous events and annual Induction festivities without the generous support of individuals across the state and businesses who support our mission of honoring athletic excellence and serving as a storyteller of sports in Virginia.
Priority Automotive Group (Priority Toyota Chesapeake) is one of those valuable partners. Serving as our presenting sponsor for #2019InductionWeekend, Priority's impact goes well beyond the Hall of Fame, through it's annual Priority Toyota Charity Bowl, and its Priorities for Change initiative, in which they support dozens of charities in the Hampton Roads region.

Whats great about our events and programs is they allow us to engage with our audience around topical sports figures, and in some cases topical issues.
We, along with NAMI Coastal Virginia came up with the idea for our May program, Changing the Game because the topic of mental health in sports is being discussed more openly than ever before. Not just by individuals but by some of the top organizations in sport.
This article from January highlights how seriously the NCAA and its Power 5 conferences are taking this issue:
From E.C. Glass High School to a 9-time NFL Pro Bowl selection, 2019 inductee #RubenBrown was a force to be reckoned with on any offensive line he was a part of. One look at his Buffalo Bills helmet, and you'll feel sorry for the defenders that were on the other end of those collisions 😬😬.
Fun fact about Brown's stint with the Chicago Bears; Brown was a member of the O-Line that cleared the way for 2018 Virginia Sports Hall of Fame inductee Thomas Jones on his way to 1,210 yards in 2006, as the team represented the NFC in Super Bowl XLI.
Brown and the rest of the Class of 2019 will be honored April 5-6 here in Town Center of Virginia Beach as part of #2019InductionWeekend. #ParticipateDontSpectate

What a year for hoops in the Commonwealth! 6-teams (D-I) either won outright or shared their conference's regular season championships; Virginia Men's Basketball, Norfolk State Athletics, ODU Basketball, VCU Athletics, Liberty Flames Athletics, Radford Men's Basketball. These teams, along with Virginia Tech Athletics have a shot to give Virginia 7-teams in the NCAA tourney! Doing the math, that would 10.3% of the entire field 💪💪
It doesn't end there! On the D-III level both CNU Athletics and Randolph-Macon College Athletics are in Sweet-16 action tonight in the NCAA tournament.
We are thrilled to announce a partnership with NAMI Coastal Virginia for our next event, #ChangingTheGame, a discussion on mental health within the sports community.
Many high profile athletic figures have begun to speak openly about their struggles, and the Hall along with NAMI want to provide a community forum where attendees can hear stories of struggle and strength, but also learn what is being done to recognize and react to mental health issues at the youth, collegiate, and professional sports levels.
We hope you will join us on May 15th in Town Center of Virginia Beach, as part of Mental Health Awareness Month, for this wonderful event. #ParticipateDontSpectate
Happy Birthday to 2004 Virginia Sports Hall of Fame inductee, William Fuller. The Indian River High School alum, went on to a stellar career for North Carolina Tar Heels 🏈, where he was a 2-time All-American selection. After being selected in TWO football drafts in 1984, the USFL and NFL, Fuller began his professional career with the Philadelphia Stars. Following a brief stint in the USFL, Fuller would terrorize NFL quarterbacks for the next 13-seasons with the #HoustonOilers, Philadelphia Eagles, and #SanDiegoChargers. Fuller is one of only 32 men to register over 100 sacks in a career.

***At that link, I share my story of living with MS and what it was like almost one year ago when this disease flared up, rearing it's ugly head in my body...impacting my mobility, energy, and causing constant pain. I live with some residual effects from that flare up (for example, spots on my fingers are numb as I type this), but nothing I can't manage! Have an awesome Wednesday and thank you for all of your support to help treat, and find a cure for, Multiple Sclerosis!
