CAMBRIDGE – Vikings stars from the past will be recognized and hear the cheers of a hometown crowd once again when Cambridge-South Dorchester High School’s 2016 Hall of Fame inductees are introduced at the first home football game on Sept. 2.

For the second year, there will 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 Mickey Hubbard of South Dorchester.

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

The Hall of Fame began three years ago. C-SD’s Athletic Director Dan Dobronz has done the heavy lifting in what turned into a labor of love during his vacation.

“This has been a summer-long project getting information” on the nominees, he said, adding that he has put hours every day into the necessary research. With many of the athletes and coaches having performed years before the Internet and its easily accessible information, there have been quite a few phone calls and searches through yearbooks and newspapers.

The hunt has yielded results, though, highlighting the rich history of athletic success at Cambridge-South Dorchester.

Special to Dorchester Banner Richard “Dickie” Moore went from being an All-Conference catcher in the Bayside in his junior year at Cambridge-South Dorchester to playing professional baseball in the Orioles’ organization.
