With wins, QB competition heightened

WATERTOWN — The Watertown Red and Black Hall of Fame will induct 10 more members, including two former presidents and two longtime coaches, during ceremonies Nov. 2.

The 2019 class includes current Red and Black assistant coach Jerry Levine, a former head coach for the team, and Dan Lounsbury, a record-setting quarterback for the Red and Black who went on to coach several NCAA Division I programs. The Hall will also induct former Red and Black presidents Don Dorchester and Bob Moore.

Others scheduled for induction are Jack Forkey, a defensive tackle on Watertown’s 1980 Empire Football League championship team, 1990s defensive standout Wayne DuPre, as well as Abe Bellinger, Richard Defone, J.D. Ross and John Tabolt.

Hall of Fame president John Morgia said the class puts the Hall at “well over 100 people.”

The induction dinner starts at 5 p.m. with ceremonies scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Nov. 2 at Savory Downtown. Tickets are $30 per person. All members are encouraged to attend.
