From Phoebus: Ronnie Hendricks
Ronnie had a complete grasp of what the Phoebus-Hampton rivalry is all about. During the 2001 season, Ronnie’s senior year, he quarterbacked the Phantoms to two victories over the Crabbers. Ronnie threw for over 1700 yards and 17 touchdowns that year, and his leadership served as the catalyst for the Phantoms first AAA State Football Championship. He continued his education and his football career at Coffeyville Community College and was in the process of transferring to Kent State when his life was tragically cut short in an auto accident in June of 2004. Not only did Ronnie leave an indelible mark on Phantom football, but also on the hearts of all who were privileged to know him. Ronnie’s parents, Kim and Ronald, and his daughter Anayiah accepted the Hall of Fame Award on his behalf.
From Hampton: Danny Mitchell
Danny is part of the Mitchell family legacy at Hampton High. His grandfather was the Crabbers’ trainer, his father played on the team, and Danny was captain of the 1969 championship team and has served as head coach since 1977. He has led the Crabbers to 10 State Championship titles and has coached in all of the Hampton/Phoebus games. Danny’s son, Matthew, continued the family football tradition as captain and quarterback for the 2007 team.
