Tickets will go on sale Monday (Feb. 10) for the third annual Pasadena ISD Athletics Hall of Fame Induction banquet, set for April 12 at Phillips Field House.

The banquet will also feature the ribbon-cutting for the 3,000-square-foot Hall of Fame facility, part of the recent Phillips renovation project.

Tickets are $50 each and may be purchased at the Pasadena ISD Athletics Ticket Office, 2906 Dabney, on the east side of the field house. Ticket office hours are weekdays, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Table sponsorships are also available for the event, which is limited to 360 seats. The banquet sold out in both 2012 and 2013. Only a limited number of general tickets are expected to be made available this year.

One former Pasadena ISD administrator and five former high-school sports standouts will be inducted, raising the total number of inductees over three years to 26.

Set for induction are Weldon “Stoney” Phillips, the Pasadena ISD’s first director of athletics; Gene McCarley, a star basketball player at Pasadena High and Baylor in the 1950s; Lanny White, an all-state halfback at Pasadena High in the 1960s; Wes Hubert, a standout center in football for South Houston High and the Texas Longhorns in the 1970s; John Holmes, a prominent distance runner for South Houston in the 1980s; and Alicia Mills Polzin, a multi-sport standout at Dobie in the 1980s who went on to volleyball stardom at Long Beach State and on several pro circuits.

A guest emcee will also be announced soon. Former ABC-TC sportscaster Dan Lovett emceed the 2012 banquet. Former Houston Oilers quarterback Dan Pastorini served as emcee last year.

Last year banquet organizers awarded two scholarships to Pasadena ISD student/athletes, one boy and one girl. As part of this year’s banquet, two scholarships will again be awarded, each for $2,000, a $500 increase from 2013.
