GREEN_Walter_Timothy_1994_1968WALTER TIMOTHY GREEN
Class of 1968
Inducted in 1994

One of the outstanding athletes of the 1960’s, Tim Green was a dominant force on the gridiron for Coach Ray Riddick, as well as a solid contributing member of both the track and baseball teams.

Tim broke into Coach Riddick’s line-up as a sophomore linebacker. Eventually he established himself as a two-way starter at end and linebacker. Tim was the Captain and a mainstay on the 1967 Red Raider eleven that compiled a 9–0 record while outscoring the opposition 299 to 12. Many local observers consider that team to be Coach Riddick’s most dominant unit. Tim was a unanimous All-Scholastic selection after numerous outstanding player awards during the season.

Tim was a standout shot-putter for Coach John Lang’s track teams, consistently among the best in the conference.

As a senior, Tim switched his focus to baseball, as a catcher-outfielder for Coach Stan Stoklosa.

After graduation, Tim played one year of football under renowned Coach Johnny Majors at Iowa State University.

UPDATE:

Tim was joined by his son Christopher Green  (Class of 1989, inducted in 2000) and his daughter Leah Catharine Green (Class of 1993, inducted in 2003).  The trio becomes the first Hall of Fame father-son,  father-daughter, and sister-brother pairs!
