They are some of the greatest athletes to ever take the field or court in Savannah and now they have taken their place in the Greater Savannah Athletic Hall of Fame. 

This year’s inductees include Jim Walsh Jr. who played at BC and then went onto excel at the University of South Carolina.  Terry Bryant, who played at Johnson before going onto Clemson and later signing NFL contracts with the Redskins and Packers was also inducted.  Bryant said he was humbled by the honor.

Twin brothers Bobby and Tommy Cannon, who starred at BC before going onto play baseball at UGA will take their place in the Hall of Fame.   “It don’t get no better than this.  You know what I mean?  We are very proud to go into together that is the only way that it should go.  He’s my best teammate and my best friend,” said Bobby Cannon.   His brother Tommy echoed the sentiment.  “We have been best friends forever.  He taught me a lot about competing.  And I appreciate it every day.”

Lucius “Bo” Levett and Lehmon Lanier received citations for their contributions to athletics.  Stevie Powers of Benedictine won the Lawton M. Calhoun as Chatham County’s outstanding athlete, and OC Welch took home the MA Spellman Award for an individual who has made a lasting impact on Savannah through Sports.
