A sports legend whose hall of fame story started in the Port City is calling it a career.
As part of the celebration of the centennial of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, the NCHSAA has released the fourth and final list of its "100 To Remember" series. The list of male athletes includes local greats Michael Jordan, Chester McGlockton, Meadowlark Lemon and WWAY's own Trot Nixon.
Before he was named to the NFL's 1960s All-Decade Team, before playing 18 seasons with the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles and before he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame, Sonny Jurgensen started his gridiron career as a quarterback for the New Hanover High School Wildcats.
