As Expected Several South Mountain Inductees into the Phoenix Union Spots Hall of Fame this Year

Posted by Communications on 12/21/2017

As usual, there were several South Mountain inductees into the Phoenix Union Spots Hall of Fame this year (December 19), including former Minnesota Vikings tight end Steve Jordan and 1976 Olympic medalist Dwayne Evans, who coaches at the school, but the biggest applause may have been for special inductee Rudy Sanchez, the first-ever athletic trainer to be inducted.  Sanchez, the trainer at South Mountain, is the longest tenured trainer in the District.  A West High graduate, he starred his career at North in 1984.  After a stint at Grand Canyon, he returned to South as a teacher and athletic trainer.  Currently on the State Board of Athletic Training State Licensure, he has served on numerous committees and has written curriculum and policies for athletic training.
