VALDOSTA – A pair of Americus natives, Michael Terry, and Rashawn Robinson, recently received the honor of an induction of their 2007 National Championship Team to the Valdosta State University (VSU) Athletic Hall of Fame.
Both Terry and Robinson won state titles with the  Americus High School Panthers before going to VSU, where they led the Blazers to a 14-1 record and the school’s second national title.
Both players were instrumental in the succeses of both the Americus High School Panthers and the VSU Blazers during their tenures at the institutions.
With the Panthers, both players were named All-State athletes.
Terry received the honor in 2002 after leading the region in rushing with over 2,000 yards.
