Big night for the Huntsville-Madison County Athletic Hall-of-Fame. Fourteen new members were inducted Monday night at a special ceremony.
Among the fourteen was former UAH Hockey Head Coach Doug Ross, current Grissom wrestling coach Joe Dasaro, and NFL star Howard Cross.
Vaughn Stewart, a noted local caricature artist, originated the idea for the HOF in 1989.
Cross, who made his name with the New York Giants and prepped at New Hope High School, was honored to come back and be a part of a very special night.
Born in Huntsville, Cross played his college ball at Alabama under Ray Perkins and Bill Curry.
Doug Ross, a native of Dearborn, Michigan, guided the UAH Chargers' hockey team from its club level stages to a surprise NCAA Tournament thriller against Notre Dame in his final game in 2007. Under Ross, the Chargers won two NCAA Division II championships in 1996 and 1998.
