BINGHAMTON – The Section IV Athletic Council announced its 2013 Hall of Fame inductees Tuesday. Local honorees are Barry Benjamin, Nick Brunick, Jason Morris, Joshua Morris, and Thomas Stoddard of Norwich; and Brad Henneman and Susan Carlin of Greene.
Benjamin starred for the Norwich football team in the early 1980s and rushed for a then-record 2,652 yards, and that included back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 1981-’82. In his only season in track and field, Benjamin was the first Norwich athlete to break 11 seconds in the 100-meter dash, and he did so in hightop basketball sneakers.
Brunick earned nine varsity letters for Norwich, but was known mostly for his exploits on the basketball court. He finished his career as the school’s number two all-time scorer, and was key component on the Tornado’s 2002 sectional championship team.
