The Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame welcomed six new inductees to the class of 2013 on Tuesday night, which included former Golden Eagle, Larry "Doc" Harrington. Harrington has proven himself a legend far beyond the boundaries of Hattiesburg.
He served as the head athletics trainer at Southern Miss for 30 years, and as the head tennis coach for 27, but Tuesday's induction into a hall of fame was the fifth of his career. Harrington is also a member of the Southeast Trainers Association Hall of Fame, the Mississippi Athletic Trainer Association Hall of Fame, the National Athletic Trainer Association Hall of Fame, and of course, the Southern Miss Athletic Hall of Fame.
Not to mention, "Doc" has also served as the head athletic trainer for a number of United States Olympic teams.
He was joined in Jackson by Mississippi legends Bill Buckner, Jimmy Giles, Gerald Glass, Langston Rogers and Michael Rubenstein. Buckner, a former East Mississippi Junior College, Delta State, and Mississippi State football player, is a hall of fame member at three other institutions.
Glass is a member of the Ole Miss Basketball All-Century team, while Giles, a former standout at Alcorn State, is a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Ring of Honor. Rogers made his name as one of the most well-respected sports information directors in the country, earning Hall of Fame honors with East Mississippi Community College, Delta State, Ole Miss, and the Mississippi Sports Writers Association.
Rubenstein is one of the hall's founders, and served as its executive director all the way until his passing in 2011.
