Jim Smith and Ken Parker, former coaches at Aberdeen and South Carroll, respectively, were among three inducted into the state's football Hall of Fame by the Maryland Scholastic Football Coaches Association at the University of Maryland's Cole Field House last night.

After coaching four sports at North Harford High for five years, including four state soccer champions, Smith coached football at Aberdeen from 1956 to 1970, compiling a 101-39-1 record.

Parker started South Carroll's program and was head coach from 1967 to 1991. His Cavaliers won region titles in 1980, '83 and '88. Parker has a 127-116-1 career record.

The third inductee is Jack Molesworth, coach at Frederick and Thomas Johnson from 1957 to '71 and later at Western Maryland College. He was executive secretary of the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association from 1971 to '81 and helped institute the state playoff system.

Also honored at the event were Bucky Kimmett (Poly), Marty McKibbin (McDonogh) and Nick Schloeder (Gilman) -- recipients of the John W. Voight Assistant Coach Award given to those with 20 years of service who are deemed outstanding assistant coaches.

Kimmett, a 36-year assistant to Augie Waibel, teaches math at Poly; Schloeder, an assistant to Sherm Bristow, has coached and taught government for 38 years; and McKibbin, a social studies teacher, has been at McDonogh for 41.
