By Staff | Jul 7, 2017

Former linebacker and assistant coach Lynn Carr, former football All-American Dan Peters and former soccer goalkeeper Amy Ridgely are the latest inductees to the Shepherd Athletic Hall of Fame. The threesome will be inducted on Friday, Sept. 22, at a banquet and then introduced on the field at the Sept. 23 football game against West Virginia State.

Carr played for the Rams from 1964-67 and was named Shepherd’s Most Outstanding Senior Athlete. He was an assistant coach for the Rams in 1974 and 1980. While coaching in the high school ranks he led Thomas Johnson of Frederick (Maryland) to a state championship in 1982.

Carr is still active in promoting Shepherd football, especially with the Ram Gridiron Club.

Peters was a three-year starter and a member of four Shepherd football teams (2003-06). Shepherd won three WVIAC championships during his career. The Rams also made two different NCAA Division II playoff appearances during his years on the field.

A three-time All-WVIAC selection, Peters was also named to the NCAA Division II first-team All-America squad in both 2005 and 2006. He led the nation in interceptions in two different seasons with 12 and 14. In his career, Peters has a school-record 32 interceptions.

Ridgely was Shepherd’s woman’s soccer goalkeeper from 2000-03 and still has the school record for saves in a game (22), saves in a season (178) and saves in a career (538). Ridgely served in the U.S. Army, where she was a combat veteran and received many medals and awards.
