Tickets for the Fourth Annual Pasadena ISD Athletics Hall of Fame Banquet are now on sale at the school district’s sports ticket office.

Six new inductees will be honored at the April 11 banquet with former University of Texas head football coach David McWilliams set to serve as guest emcee.

Tickets for the banquet are $50 each. Table sponsorships are also available at various donation levels.

Table sponsors and inductees will gather at a reception in the Hall of Fame Museum just before the banquet, which starts at 6 p.m. at Phillips Field House. The museum is located on the north end of the gym.

McWilliams will take part in a ceremony that will include the induction of two former Pasadena ISD football standouts who played for UT during McWilliams’ 16-year stint as a Longhorns’ assistant coach.

Steve Oxley, a 1969 Rayburn graduate, played in the offensive line for the Longhorns from 1970 to 1972 under Darrell Royal. Randy McEachern, a 1974 Dobie graduate, played quarterback for UT in 1977 and 1978 under Fred Akers.

McWilliams was a UT defensive assistant coach during the college careers of both Oxley and McEachern.

Other former Pasadena ISD athletes set for induction are David Webb, Pasadena High Class of 1959, a four-sport standout who later played football at Lamar; Jeff Wylie, Pasadena High Class of 1987, who went on to star in the high jump at Baylor; and Kyla Hall Holas, South Houston High Class of 1990, who enjoyed an All-American softball career as a pitcher for Southwestern Louisiana.

Also selected for induction is the late Scott Talton, who coached Dobie’s boys basketball team to 500 victories, four district titles and 15 playoff appearances over a 27-year career.

Individuals or groups interested in sponsoring a banquet table are asked to contact Cindy Parmer, Director of Community Relations for the Pasadena ISD, at 713-740-0288, or by email at
