CAM­BRIDGE — The third an­nual Cam­bridge-South Dorch­ester High Ath­letic Hall of Fame class has been se­lected; a ban­quet honor­ing the 2016 in­ductees takes place at 5 p.m. Sept. 3, in the high school gym­na­sium.

Tick­ets for the event are $20 per per­son, and it is open to the pub­lic.

“Ev­ery year, we se­lect one team from the past, and also sev­eral in­di­vid­u­als,” said C-SD ath­letic di­rec­tor Dan Dobronz. “We also try to get one per­son from each of the three for­mer high schools [in the area], one from Mace’s Lane, one from Cam­bridge High, and one from South Dorch­ester. That’s what we call the Pi­o­neer Award.”

An­nu­ally be­gin­ning in 2014, each crop of new in­ductees have been hon­ored be­fore a C-SD home foot­ball game, with the cel­e­bra­tory ban­quet held the next evening at the high school. The last two years, the ban­quet has been held at the Dorch­ester Ca­reer and Tech­nol­ogy Cen­ter, or DCTC, but this year, the in­ductees need a bit more room.

This year’s pub­lic cer­e­mony takes place just be­fore the Vik­ings’ sea­son opener, at home Sept. 2 against Wi­comico High.

“The 1996 C-SD foot­ball team was in­ducted this year,” Dobronz said, “and you can imag­ine how much space that would take up if all 50 play­ers came, and all of them brought their wives — that’s 100 peo­ple right there.

“So we’re go­ing to have it in the gym,” Dobronz said. “That will hold a lot more peo­ple.”

In ad­di­tion to the 1996 Vik­ing state champ foot­ball team, the in­di­vid­ual in­ductees in­clude: • Abby Mes­sick, a twotime state ten­nis cham­pion; • Ant­wan Lake, a state champ in foot­ball and bas­ket­ball and for­mer NFL de­fen­sive line­man; • Ryan Fleet­wood, a twosport star and start­ing quar­ter­back on the 1995 state cham­pi­onship foot­ball team; • Ty­rone Travis, a dom­i­nant C-SD bas­ket­ball cen­ter who won a state ti­tle in 1989, and went on to play in col­lege, and as a pro over­seas; • Dickie Moore, catcher for the 1977 state champ base­ball team, the school’s first team to take a state ti­tle; • Dave Wool­folk, a mul­ti­sport star who played foot­ball on the 1979 foot­ball champ team and West Point player when the team won its first-ever bowl game.

The Pi­o­neer Award re­cip­i­ents for this year are: • Bobby El­liott, a hard­wood star and 1968 grad­u­ate of Mace’s Lane High, who av­er­aged 24 points and 17 re­bounds a game his se­nior year, and who also starred on mul­ti­ple state-champ track teams; • Steve Davis, a mul­ti­skilled ath­lete who grad­u­ated from Cam­bridge High in 1972, and played col­lege and pro­fes­sional foot­ball; • Mickey Hubbard, who coached 2015 C-SD Hall of Fame in­ductee John Mur­phy at South Dorch­ester High, when he won mul­ti­ple state cross-coun­try ti­tles; Hubbard later coached at Cam­bridge High as well. Al­most ev­ery in­di­vid­ual in­ductee, as well as a num­ber of play­ers and coaches from the 1996 C-SD foot­ball team, will be in at­ten­dance for the ban­quet. Tick­ets will be on sale up un­til it starts.
