(Tabor) -- Former legendary Farragut coach Tom Ramsey was honored on Sunday with induction into the KMA Sports Hall of Fame.

Ramsey was inducted during a short ceremony during the KMAland All-Star Basketball Classic.

The former Admirals head man spent 22 seasons as the head boy's basketball coach, a decade as the girl's basketball coach and just over a decade as the football coach.

Ramsey won 263 career games as the Farragut boys basketball coach, including one at the 1992 state tournament where the Admirals finished fourth.

The KMA Sports Hall of Fame also honored the second winner of the Eberly Family Legacy Award.

The Ralph Carl Family Foundation donated more than $1 million to Fremont-Mills projects and has impacted the community for well over 10 decades.

Carl began teaching at Tabor High School in 1928 and continued teaching there and at Fremont-Mills through 1972. Upon his retirement, he set up the Helen and Ralph Carl Foundation with initial assets of $500,000.

His foundation would donate to the Fremont-Mills fitness center and gymnasium, the football stadium, track and bleachers and the library campaign among many others.
