10-9-23 roundup: Pro football, basketball and soccer, High school football, College football, Middle school football, NASCAR

By Richard Walker

The first conference championship-winning Gardner-Webb football coach is the featured speaker for the 2023 Cherryville Sports Hall of Fame ceremony where 10 individuals and one team will be inducted.

Woody Fish, a former Bessemer City High School coach, guided the Bulldogs to a 73-70-1 record that included a NAIA national runner-up finish in 1992 and the school’s first league titles – South Atlantic Conference – in 1987 and 1992.

Chuck Dellinger

Fish retired from GWU in 2020 after 15 years as a school’s fundraiser; Fish was involved in a $45 million capital campaign and was key to helping the school upgrade all of its athletic facilities after moving from NCAA Division II to NCAA Division in 2001.

The Oct. 21 event is set for 6 p.m. at the Christian Life Center of Cherryville’s First Baptist Church. Tickets for the general public are available for $10 apiece at these locations in Cherryville: Cherryville High School, Medical Center Pharmacy, and City Hall. Tickets may also be purchased from individual committee members Danny Eaker, Mike Powell, Jerry Hudson, Calvin Hastings, Dennis Tate, Al Graves and Scott Harrill.

The induction class will be comprised of Dewey Quinn, Chuck Dellinger, Donald Alexander, Drew Reynolds, Allan Davidson, Scott Heavner, Alan Lindsay, Chad Cash, Calvin Padgett and Wendy Holt and the 1982 Cherryville High School N.C. 2A state championship baseball team.

Quinn, a 1943 Cherryville High product, was a 3-sport standout at Clemson who was inducted into that school’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 1994. After starting his college career at Newberry, spent two years in the U.S. Air Force before playing football (1945-46), bsaketball (1946-47) and baseball (1946-47) for the Tigers. Quinn, who died in 2004, spent much of his career in Cherryville as a textile executive for Burlington Industries.

A 2-time All-Southwestern Conference lineman at Cherryville High, Dellinger played his college football at Western Carolina University (where he was a 2-year starting offensive tackle) and eventually starting a long career as director for the Gastonia Recreation Department in 1979. Most recently, Dellinger was special project advisor for the planning, design and construction of Gastonia’s FUSE (Caromont Health Park).

Scott Heavner

Alexander, a building contractor, is wrapping up a 45-year stint as a coach with the Cherryville Little League program. A member of Cherryville’s Little League, Senior League, junior high and high school programs, he began coaching at 15 and later led Cherryville to two Little League championships and four Senior League titles. Alexander also served as assistant coach for legendary Cherryville High coach Henry Jones from 1986 to 1988.

Drew Reynolds, the son of 1998 inaugural Cherryville Hall of Fame inductee Bobby Reynolds, played for his father at East Rutherford and former Cherryville Post 100 and at East Carolina where he was a three-time All-Conference USA pick and a second-team All-America selection by Collegiate Baseball in 2013. He is currently a Post 100 assistant coach and head baseball coach at East Rutherford High.

Davidson, who now lives in Shelby, played multiple sports at Cherryville High and earned all-conference honors in football and baseball. He pitched the only perfect game in Cherryville High School history in 1987 against Bunker Hill and later played football and baseball in college at Gardner-Webb University and was named senior athlete of the year in 1991. Davidson also was a 3-year starter for Cherryville Post 100’s Legion team and played in the 1985 Southeast Regional hosted at Cherryville’s Fraley Field.

Heavner is the current head coach of Cherryville High baseball and has guided the Ironmen to two state championships, 10 conference titles and a 333-139 record since replacing his Cherryville High coach Henry Jones in 2006. Heavner was a pitcher for Jones and later at North Greenville under Cherryville Hall of Famer Rusty Stroupe and also at Appalachian State.

Lindsay, a 1969 Cherryville High graduate, was a pitching legend at Cherryville Junior and Senior Highs and Cherryville Post 100 and nearby Gaston College. During his Legion baseball career, Lindsay had two 21-strikeout outings, one each in 1968 and 1969 and he was drafted twice by major league teams, the latter as the only drafted player in Gaston College’s baseball history.

Drew Reynolds

Cash, the chief operations officer at Carolina Federal Credit Union, played baseball on Cherryville High’s N.C. 2A state title team in 1998 and Cherryville Post 100’s 1998 American Legion World Series runner-up. A skilled golfer, Cash has won six club championships at Cherryville Country Club, and this spring he took over as golf coach at Cherryville High. Cash also has been a coach and administrator for the Cherryville Little League program from 2005 to 2021.

Padgett, a 1987 Cherryville High graduate, was a state champion in track and held most of the school’s track records for more than 20 years.
He earned all-state honors for the 100- and 200-meter runs in 1986, earning All-American honors in 1986. A college sprinter at Appalachian State and Lenoir-Rhyne, Padgett was the NAIA District 26 champion in 1990.

Holt, a longtime cheerleading coach at Cherryville High, has guided her program to 25 state championships in the sport in various divisions.
Before her coaching career, she played softball, basketball, track while being a cheerleader at Cherryville and softball and was a cheerleader at Limestone College. She is currently in her 27th year in education – all of them at CHS.

The 1982 Cherryville team that was coached by Jones, had a 25-2 overall and rallied to beat South Granville in the state finals after losing the opener of the best-of-3 championship series. The team featured future college baseball players and future Cherryville Sports Hall of Famers Bobby Reynolds (1998 induction), Brad Long (1998), Rusty Stroupe (1999) and its coach Henry Jones (1999), Kent Alexander (2001). Other team members are Nelson Whitaker, Mel Black, Rodney Willis), Tim Rochester, Dink Day, Barry Mitchell, Jeff Hastings, Dean McSwain, Bradley Brown, Harold Lovelace, Dewey Fitch, Harold Simpson, Tim Moss, Chip Allran, Dean Starling, Kirk Thornburg, David Buff and Todd Moss.
