The North Carolina High School Athletic Association has named him one of the "100 to Remember: Male Athletes" which feature the top 100 male athletes in NCHSAA.

"So many individuals have participated, coached, or been involved with the rich history and tradition of the first 100 years of the NCHSAA. This group of distinguished individuals not only served their schools, school systems and communities in an exceptional fashion, but our association as well."
During the 2013 year, the 100th anniversary is celebrated by the NCHSAA four "100 to Remember" lists have been released.
The first was administrators, the second was coaches, then female athletes and the male athletes.
