CAMBRIDGE – Cambridge-South Dorchester High School’s 2016 Hall of Fame inductees will be introduced at the first home football game on Sept. 2.

Not only will there be individuals, but there will also be Pioneers included, representing the schools — Mace’s Lane, Cambridge and South Dorchester — that were incorporated into the new C-SD in 1976.

Individual inductees are Richard “Dickie” Moore, Tyrone Travis, Antwan Lake, Dave Woolfolk, Ryan Fleetwood and Abbie Messick. Pioneers are Bobby Elliott of Mace’s Lane, Steve Davis of Cambridge and Micky Hubbard of South Dorchester.

This year’s team inductee will be the state champion football squad of 1996.

The Hall of Fame inductions were begun three years ago. C-SD’s Athletic Director Dan Dobronz has made quite a few phone calls and searches through yearbooks and newspapers to uncover the statistics – and glory – of those top Viking athletes.

Special to Dorchester Banner The 1996 Cambridge-South Dorchester High School football team won the Maryland State Championships under Head Coach Doug Fleetwood.

1996 football team
What does a football team do after winning the Maryland State Championships in 1995? It wins in 1996, too.

The Vikings went undefeated with a 13-0 record in ‘96, and beat Kent County in the title game. They racked up that impressive record under Head Coach Doug Fleetwood, who has already been named to the Hall.

“He’s been part of our Hall of Fame for three years now” in his various capacities in C-SD’s sports history, Mr. Dobronz said.

Mickey Hubbard
South Dorchester High School won two consecutive state championships in cross country 1958 and 1959 under Coach Mickey Hubbard. Mr. Hubbard also coached football and track and field at C-SD.

Known as a talented sprinter when he was in school, he was also recognized as a great technical coach.

Steve Davis
A 1972 graduate from Cambridge High School, Davis compiled an impressive list of accomplishments. He was All-State, All-Conference, Sunkist All-American, and Super 11 as a quarterback, meaning Davis was considered one of the best 11 players in the country.

In an era when football offenses were still geared primarily towards running, Davis totalled 1,800 yards in the air in 1971, leading to 17 passing touchdowns. He was on two state championship teams.

Davis was also an outstanding track and field athlete, notching a time of 14.3 in the 120-yard high hurdles, and a discus throw of 142 feet.

After high school, he was recruited by USC and Alabama, and eventually decided to attend Georgia, where he played wide receiver. Georgia won the SEC Championships in 1977 before losing the national title game to Pitt.

Davis was drafted in the eighth round by the Houston Oilers in 1977.

The induction banquet will take place in the C-SD gymnasium on Sept. 3, at 5 p.m. Tickets are $20 and the event is open to the public.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or prior to the event at the school. For information, call 410-228-9224.
