2024 Hall of Fame inductee spotlight: Matt Wingo! πŸ†πŸˆπŸŽ½

Matt Wingo, a versatile star at Dobie High School, earned recognition for his football prowess in multiple positions, showcasing skills in running, tackling, and kicking. His junior year in 1985 contributed to Dobie’s 12-1 record and regional semifinals appearance, with first-team all-district honors as a linebacker and punter. Wingo’s effectiveness as a running back challenged defensive backs, and his track achievements in discus and shot put drew college recruiters’ attention. Transitioning to Texas Tech, he became one of the university’s most prolific tacklers, accumulating 385 tackles over four years, leading the team to All-American Bowl victory, and receiving leadership awards. Last year, Wingo was inducted into the Red Raiders’ Athletics Hall of Fame, capping off a celebrated career that included pursuing a professional football stint with the Denver Broncos.
