UNT Athletic Hall of Fame inductees for 2002 are:
Blakeley, the Mean Green’s head basketball coach from
the 1975-76 season to the 1982-83 season. He had the second
most victories in school history, and his career mark of 134-85
gives him the fourth-best winning percentage (.612) in North
Texas history. He led the Mean Green to three straight 20-win
seasons, with one of his teams earning the school’s
first and only Top 20 ranking.
Greenwood, a three-time letter winner in golf at North Texas
from 1961 to 1963 who helped lead the Eagles to three consecutive
Missouri Valley Conference championships. As a senior, he
led the Eagles to the NCAA championship tournament in 1963,
when North Texas placed third. Greenwood received honorable
mention All-America honors as a sophomore in 1961 and was
a first-team All-American as a junior and senior.
Moore, an outstanding receiver for the Mean Green football
team in 1968 and 1969. He shares the school record for receiving
yards in a season, amassing 1,130 yards in 1969. That season
he caught 71 passes and scored five touchdowns to earn his
second straight All-Missouri Valley Conference honor. The
71 receptions rank third in North Texas history, while his
2,183 career reception yards are No. 4 in school history.
In 1968, Moore rolled up 228 yards in receptions in a game
against the University of Texas at El Paso, a mark that ranks
No. 2 in school history.
Moore, a member of the Eagle football team from 1957 to 1960
who has since earned national recognition as one of Texas’
most successful high school football coaches. Moore has coached
at Bryson, Pilot Point, Celina and Sherman over a five-decade
career that is highlighted by eight state championships. Now
back at Pilot Point, he could become the winningest coach
in the history of Texas high school football this season.
