OTTAWA – A long-time Williamsburg teacher and coach, and one of the top receivers in Ottawa University football history were named to the Braves Athletic Hall of Fame Friday night. In 1979, Kim Hendrix set the single-season record in receiving yards with 1,083, tied the OU single-season record in touchdown receptions with 16, and earned NAIA All-America honorable mention honors in 1978. He said it was a case of getting honored for having fun. OU basketball and track star Lou Coppoc, from the Class of 1957, was the KCAC pole vault champion for three consecutive years from 1955 to 1957 and was part of the Braves basketball team that took first in the KCAC during the 1954-55 season. He called it an honor to be inducted into the Braves hall. Coppoc taught and coached at Williamsburg High School for 38 years.
