November 11, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

A three-sport female athlete, a longtime coach and one of his players, and three football players will be inducted into the Western Maryland Sports Hall Of Fame Saturday.

Sally Stanfield, of Randallstown, was a varsity letter-winner in field hockey, basketball and lacrosse, serving as a co-captain in hockey and lacrosse during her senior year (1977-78).

Joining her in the 6 p.m. program at the Decker College Center Forum will be Philip Uhrig, coach of men's soccer for 11 years (1949-59), including a conference championship squad in 1955. His teams went from 0-10 his first season to 9-1-1 in 1959, a group considered one of the best in school history.

Howard "Dick" Linton (1954), a halfback and fullback for Uhrig, was a four-time All-Mason-Dixon selection, a Middle Atlantic Conference all-star, and a team captain.

Former football players in this year's class include Ricci Bonaccorsy (1980) of Edgewater, who received All-American recognition in 1978-79 and is one of only two Western Maryland players to be so honored since a Division III selection process began in 1967.

Robert Butler (1957) highlighted his career by not missing a minute of a 10-game schedule his senior season, going both ways as an end and tackle.

Fred Dilkes (1961) set school rushing records in 1959-60, and is fourth in school history with 2,572 yards and fourth in total yards with more than 3,200. He was a three-time all-conference selection for Mason-Dixon and Middle Atlantic and two-time Little All-American.
