Southeastern Conference (SEC) football legend Condredge Holloway returned to his hometown of Huntsville, Alabama to participate in a naming ceremony for the "Condredge Holloway Athletic Complex" at Lee High School. Holloway was a three-sport athlete at Lee before attending the University of Tennessee where he became the first African-American quarterback to play in the SEC.
"The University of Tennessee has a statue of the man outside their stadium," said Tony Woods, principal of Lee High School. "We should have something here on campus where it all started."
Superintendent Christie Finley said Holloway is a shining example of what it means to be a Huntsville City Schools graduate.
"Here in Huntsville City Schools, we encourage our students to build a future and leave a legacy," Finley said. "Mr. Holloway, you built a future and left a legacy, and our students will be reminded of that every time they enter the fieldhouse here at Lee High School."
Holloway won multiple Grey Cups in the Canadian Football League in addition to receiving Most Outstanding Player honors.
