Tuesday was also the Banks and One Pocket Hall of Fame induction dinner. The inductees for this year were Shannon “The Cannon” Daulton and Larry Price.  Larry Price was one of the great players we lost in the past year. He was inducted into the Banks HOF having won the DCC banks in 2002 and 2008. A number of great players have been lost over the last year and recognized in memorial were Grady “The Professor” Mathews, Danny Medina, Riley “Jet” Johnson and “Monster John” Rouse.

Shannon “The Cannon” Daulton is the first person to be inducted into both the Banks and One Pocket HOF on the same ballot. Shannon was recognized and roasted by numerous players including Buddy Hall, Johnny Archer, Truman Hogue and Marry Kenniston.  Shannon joins only four other players that are in both Hall of Fames, Nick Varner, “Cornbread Red” Burge, Leonard “Bugs” Rucker and Eddie Taylor.
