As Duke Athletics wraps up yet another successful calendar year, we wanted to look back at interviews with inductees of the Athletics Hall of Fame Class of 2016—Individuals who not only contributed to the university’s achievements, but laid the foundation for those to follow.

The Athletics Hall of Fame Class of 2016 featured seven remarkable inductees: Shane Battier, Grant Hill, Dan Brooks, Ed Meadows, Virada Nirapathpongporn, Kelly Walbert Cagle and Mary Dinkins.

Today’s feature highlights football star Ed Meadows, who was enshrined posthumously after passing away in 1974.

His son, Ed Meadows III, who declined to be interviewed, spoke at the induction ceremony on behalf of his father. That speech can be found here.
