2010 Hall of Fame: Daniel Peterson and Julio Jones

September 14, 2010

The inductee from Daphne High School is Daniel Peterson. Daniel played football and baseball at Daphne. In the 2006 Daphne-Foley game, Foley led 41-34 with 1:30 to play. On the 7 yard line, Foley ran a dive play and the ball was stripped, bouncing right into Daniel’s hands, where he raced 92 yds for a touchdown. After completing a 2-point conversion, Daphne won 42-41. Daniel went on to graduate with honors and attends Troy University on a full academic and baseball scholarship. He has lettered for 3 years with the Trojans and has a career average of .318. He will graduate in May with a degree in biomedical sciences. He has applied to Medical School at South Alabama.

And from Foley High School is, Julio Jones, the all-time leading receiver in Foley High School history. In 2007, the Foley-Daphne game was aired on ESPN and Julio had a TD reception in the first quarter. After being injured in the second quarter, Julio emerged from the locker room in the third quarter to score the game winning TD by going up and over the Trojan defense to haul in a pass. Julio went on to sign with the University of Alabama and won a National Championship last season.
