Medley was a 1949 All-State football player whose college career at Ole Miss was cut short by an injury. Medley returned to his alma mater to teach and coach many of the athletes he was inducted with Friday.

"I could tell you some things about a lot of these people and they would never get in the hall of fame," Medley told the audience at the luncheon. "But they could tell you some things about me that would keep me out too.

"This is just wonderful. I wouldn't take a hundred dollars for all the old kids and all the ones that I have known. It has just been wonderful."

When Sieron wasn't carrying Adams' golf bag, he was an outstanding football player and discus and shot put man on the track team.

Sieron, now a Jacksonville area attorney who helps coach at Bolles School, told the story that one day as Medley was coaching him on throwing events, he looked over to see the coach reading what to do from a book.

"When I got the word (about being an inductee) I was speechless," he said. "Family is what it's all about. Crestview is a very special place.

"Crestview gave me a foundation of hard work and discipline. It led me when I got to college to work hard and achieve career goals that I could only have dreamed of without sports."
