PASADENA, CALIFORNIA, JANUARY 1, 2017



On January 1, 2017, Pasadena Football AKA "THE FRANCHISE" will never be the same.

To compliment our 10 Super Bowl Championships, A phenomenal induction into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame will take place with the induction of Ricky Ervins on New Year's Day in Pasadena, California.

Mr. Ervins will be the first native from Pasadena, California to be inducted into the best sporting venue in the world - The Rose Bowl.


A year ago PASHOF asked "When" and "Why' someone from Pasadena would be inducted and, most importantly, why it hasn't happened? We even dedicated a brick at the Rose Bowl in honor of all who played, cheered and supported The Franchise.

That day has come, finally...

From his days of playing pop warner football at Victory Park, to his days of domination in that infamous Blue and Gold uniform at John Muir High School (which embodies decades of talented teammates, coaches, supporters, cheerleaders.....and competitors) to his days at USC under the No. 34 and the ultimate achievement, a Super Bowl Ring, Mr. Ervin's contribution not just to the history of football at the Rose Bowl, but his legacy as a valued, honored member of The Franchise will be forever enshrined in Pasadena, California.

To every teammate of Mr. Ervins from Pasadena, we thank you.

To every cheerleader who cheered on Mr. Ervins and his teammates, we thank you.

To every Pasadena coach who, mentored, motivated and inspired Mr. Ervins, we thank you.

To every individual in the greatest city in the world who supported football in Pasadena, in big and small ways, we thank you.

To every member of The Franchise who came before Mr. Ervins, we thank you for laying the benchmark for excellence. This kid from Pasadena, like many, made it!

And most importantly, to Mr. Ervins....we thank you for your commitment and loyalty to the sport of football. Words cannot express the humbling joy we get in knowing that Pasadena, California, has called you home.

Go, Pasadena!

PASHOF TRIBUTE

Alice Brown

Alice Brown

Pasadena Sports Hall of Fame

While a student at John Muir High School, Alice Brown was one of the most dynamic sprinters in the state...or to ever put on a pair of track shoes in Pasadena, CA.


During her senior year, Ms. Brown was the runner-up in the 100 yard dash at the state finals - finishing just ahead of future  Olympians, Pam

​​​

Marshall and Valerie Brisco. She finished 4th in the 220 yard dash behind Marshall, but ahead of another future Olympian, Florence Griffith.


After high school, Alice went to California State University - Northridge, where she solidified herself as one of the fastest female sprinters in the country. Her hopes of running in the 1980 Moscow Olympics were derailed when the United States boycotted the games.  Four years later, she would earn a spot on the 1984 U.S. Olympic Team competing in the 100 meters, and as the 1st leg runner in the 4 x 100 relay team. She would earn a silver medal in the 100m, and a gold medal in the 4x100 relay.


At the 1988 Olympics, Ms. Brown would earn another gold medal on another 4 x 100 relay team that included Florence G. Joyner and Evelyn Ashford.  She won her first gold medal with Evelyn Ashford at the 1980 Olympics.  However, in 1987, Ms. Brown was part of the World Championship 4 x 100 relay team (which included Florence G. Joyner and Pam Marshall) that not only won gold, but set a U.S. record of 41.58. That awesome race in Rome, Italy is recorded as one of the fastest times in history.


Ms. Brown is truly a Pasadena legend.  Ms. Brown is a member of PASHOF's 2015-16 Hall of Fame Inductees.
