Hall of Fame 2022
THE LEGENDS OF THE FALL 2022
The has been an exciting tradition at our school since 2000, inducting more than 80 former athletes, as well as several special people who have given generously of their time and talents to support our athletics program. It is with great pleasure that I announce the 2022 Prince Edward Academy/Fuqua School Athletic Hall of Fame will honor Coach Lewis “Skeeter” Fore and Walter “Bozo” Addleman as they are inducted and Coach Robert “Bob Hazelwood as he is inducted posthumously.
In Gilmer Gym a framed photo of three legends of the fall can be found, are recognized for their great leadership and dedication and for being most deserving of the love and respect that comes with being called “Coach”. The recognition goes on to mention the dynastic run these three gentlemen had as our football coaches from 1968-1992, with an overall winning percentage of .725, 8 conference championships, and an overall record of 148 wins, 56 losses, and 2 ties. And yet, it is not the wins and losses, the conference championships, or the overall winning percentage that makes these men so special to us all.
In coaching our defense throughout those decades, Coach Hazelwood was teaching so much more than how to tackle properly and penetrate the line. He was teaching perseverance. In calling plays for our offense, Coach Addleman was teaching so much more than strategy and balanced attacks. He was teaching responsibility. In serving as our Head Coach, Coach Fore was teaching so much more than to put “we” before “me” and to win with class. He was teaching respect; all core values that remain at the heart of a Fuqua School education and can be seen in our students today.
