Garner honors 2017 Hall of Fame Class

The Trojans gathered to honor the newest Hall of Fame Class: 3-time CFL All-Star Brandon Banks (’06), US Paralympic Swim team member and 4-time medalist Tucker Dupree (’07), two-sport star and Coach Mickey Faulk (’60), and two-sport athlete and professional sports psychologist and author Dr. Shaun Tyrance (’96). In ceremonies at the Grand Marquis Ballroom, Trojan fans were treated to entertaining and humble speeches by our outstanding inductees of the 8th Trojan Hall of Fame class. The common theme certainly was their love for their school and our hometown that groomed these noteworthy athletes and citizens into the success they have achieved, during their Garner careers and beyond.

Noel Buitrago – Trojan Club; Garner Chiropractic Scholarship Nicholas Field Dalton Forster
