Blog: 2022 NEMFCA Eight Player Football Hall of Fame Announcement (1/26/22)
Madrid high school Larry Vlasin was one of the greatest players in 8-a-side football. Vlasin was a true natural in many sports other than football, including baseball, where he was drafted by the Kansas City Athletics in 1965. A true legend!
Three coaches and eleven players have been named to the 2022 NEMFCA Football Eights Hall of Fame. They will be inducted at ceremonies on Saturday, June 18 at the Tom Osborne Sports Complex in Hastings, Nebraska.
The Hall of Fame is presented by the Nebraska Eight-Man Football Coaches Association. The induction ceremonies will take place at halftime of the 45th annual Sertoma All-Eights All-Star Game played at Hastings College. The kick-off of the match will take place at 6:00 p.m.
