MT. HERMON — Southern Alamance High School has honored this year’s class for induction into the Southern Alamance Athletic Hall of Fame, according to the Burlington Times-News.

The induction class includes Timmie Morrow, Julie Isley O’Keefe and Jimmy Teague, as well as the 1988 NCHSAA state champion baseball team.

Morrow, a 1988 Southern Alamance graduate, earned 11 varsity letters while participating in baseball, football, basketball and track and field. He was drafted in the second round of the 1988 baseball draft by the Texas Rangers and made it as high as Class AAA in the minors.

O’Keefe, who graduated in 2000, played a variety of sports at Southern, including tennis, basketball, soccer and track and field. She went on to play soccer for Lenoir-Rhyne and later worked for the Burlington Soccer Academy.

Teague has been an outstanding high school football coach. A 1976 Southern graduate, Teague has won four state football championships, including a great run at Reidsville. After serving as an assistant coach at Cummings, he has been a head coach at Eastern Alamance, Garinger, Reidsville and George Washington in Danville, Va. He also worked at Greensboro College as an assistant coach.

The Southern Alamance baseball team posted a perfect 26-0 record en route to the second state championship in school history. David Vaughn was the head coach of the Patriots and Morrow was the MVP of the championship series.

The inductees were recognized at a Southern Alamance football game and then later at a dinner at the Burlington Ramada Inn.
