12 new members were inducted into the Tulsa Public Schools Sports Hall of Fame. Among them is Tulsa Rogers graduate Dave Rader.
If there is one guy that is Mr. Tulsa Sports it would be Coach Rader. He quarterbacked the Tulsa Golden Hurricane and coached at TU for over a decade. But as a Rogers Roper he was more than a football player. He was a basketball and baseball star as well. So which sport was his favorite.
"Whatever season it was we enjoyed playing.' said Rader, " I looked forward to the late summer months to prepare for football. Then when football was over I really looked forward to playing basketball. Then of course when the sun stays out a little later at night you can't wait to play baseball. So whichever season we were in, that's how we did it."
Along with Dave Rader the other inductees are Kenny Monday, Jimbo Elrod, Mike Fanning, Steve Bowling, Henry Johnson, Gary Moore, Tatia Brown, Michelle Scholtz, Gordon Morgan, Jim Sellers and Woody West.
