Chapel Hill, NC - Five state prep athletic have been selected for induction into the North Carolina High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame.

Tim Brayboy of Cary, Jim Burch of Cary, Dick Knox of Chapel Hill, the late Tom McQuaid of Beaufort and Mike Raybon of Jamestown have been chosen as the 19th group of inductees to join the prestigious hall. That brings to 97 the number enshrined.

The new inductees will be honored during special halftime ceremonies at a football game at Kenan Stadium on Saturday, November 12, when North Carolina takes on Maryland. The University of North Carolina has designated the day as the 21st annual NCHSAA Day. The new class will officially be inducted at the special Hall of Fame banquet next spring at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill.

The NCHSAA Hall of Fame is supported by a special grant from GlaxoSmithKline. Coca -Cola Bottling Company Consolidated is also a major corporate partner for the program.

"These individuals joining the Association Hall of Fame this year have certainly had a tremendous impact on high school athletics across North Carolina," says NCHSAA associate executive director Rick Strunk, who coordinates the Hall for the Association. "Their records are certainly impressive, but the character they exemplified and the lives they touched are really representative of what the NCHSAA stands for. Their selection maintains the high standards of excellence established by previous inductees, and we are proud to honor these deserving individuals."

Tim Brayboy

Tim Brayboy¹s involvement in high school athletics in North Carolina has come in a variety of ways.

A graduate of Pembroke High School, Brayboy went on to play four years of varsity baseball at Pembroke State College and was later inducted into the UNC-Pembroke Athletic Hall of Fame. After graduation from Pembroke, he coached for several years at Canton Junior High before joining the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.

He was on the DPI staff for 24 years, serving as director of middle school and junior high athletics and working closely with the NCHSAA. In addition, he has enjoyed over 40 years as an outstanding game official in football and basketball, working 14 state championship contests and several major all-star games.

Brayboy has been inducted into the North Carolina Athletic Directors Association Hall of Fame and is co-author of a book about the history of Indian high school basketball in Robeson and adjoining counties, entitled Playing Before An Overflow Crowd.

Jim Burch

Jim Burch has had a distinguished career in education and as a basketball official.

A native of Mamaroneck, New York, Burch is a 1949 graduate of Fayetteville State University and was a teacher, coach and then administrator for many years before joining the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. He was on the DPI staff in various capacities for over 20 years before his retirement in 1992.

His officiating experience includes 17 years at the high school level and 29 in collegiate basketball. He worked the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) tournament 20 years, the Southern Conference event 15, and worked four NCAA regional tournaments.

Burch has served as the supervisor or coordinator of basketball officials for the Southern Conference, the South Atlantic
Conference and the CIAA. He is a member of the Fayetteville State Athletic Hall of Fame, the CIAA Bssketball Officials Hall of Fame, and the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Basketball Hall of Fame. In 1996, Referee Magazine selected him as one of the 20 who have most influenced officiating in the last 20 years.

Dick Knox

Dick Knox has an impressive coaching resume at several high schools, but he may be best remembered for almost 20 years on staff with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association.

A native of Indianapolis, Knox is a 1961 graduate of Atlantic Christian (now Barton) College and is a member of that school's Hall of Fame. He embarked on an excellent coaching career, primarily coaching basketball and football, that took him to a number of stops, including Dunn, Jacksonville, New York Military Academy, Vaiden-Whitley, Raleigh Enloe, Wilson Fike, Greensboro Smith and Greensboro Grimsley.

He came to the NCHSAA in 1984 and served as supervisor of officials and deputy executive director. An outstanding high school and college basketball game official, Knox also served as the chairman of the basketball rules committee for the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). He was a member of the wrestling, baseball and football national rules committees as well.

He is a member of the North Carolina Athletic Directors' Hall of Fame and has received a Distinguished Service Award from the National Federation.

Tom McQuaid

The late Tom McQuaid is perhaps best remembered for unprecedented success at Beaufort in men's basketball in the late 1950's, but he enjoyed an outstanding 42-year career as a coach and administrator.

A five-sport high school star in Vienna, Ohio, McQuaid played football and basketball at Newberry College (SC) and graduated in 1935. He coached at Beaufort from 1936 to ¹42, served in the U.S. Army during World War II, and then returned to Beaufort for another 20 years.

During that 20-year stretch from 1945 to '65, his teams posted a cumulative record of 368-75, including a 91-game winning streak, one of the nation's longest, and three straight Class A state titles. After consolidation in Carteret County, McQuaid was the football coach at Union Pines (1965-66) and then basketball coach at Sanford Central (1966-68) before returning to coach and serve as athletic director at East Carteret, reviving its basketball fortunes and winning almost 100 games there.

McQuaid died in 1988.

Mike Raybon

Mike Raybon has made enormous contributions to high school athletics in general and wrestling in particular in North Carolina.

A graduate of Bandys High in Catawba County, Raybon earned his BS degree at Appalachian State in 1963 and then began his teaching and coaching career. From 1965 to '84, he was the head wrestling coach at Ragsdale, where he started the program. He posted a 216-45-2 mark in that sport, including seven unbeaten seasons, 14 conference championships and three state championships. He served as assistant principal at Ragsdale for a couple of years and then eight years at Southwest Guilford before returning to Ragsdale in '95 as athletic director, a position he currently holds.

He has won numerous Coach of the Year awards at the conference and state level and for years either directed or served as consultant for the NCHSAA state wrestling championships, helping turn it into a signature event. He has also served as commissioner for several high school athletic conferences and for over 30 years was an outstanding wrestling official.

The Hall of Fame plaques are on permanent display in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association¹s Hall of Fame room, located in the Simon F. Terrell Building in Chapel Hill that houses the Association offices.
