Brian Satterfield expected to be a tailback when he signed to play football for North Alabama back in 1989.
But as Satterfield recalls, his days at tailback didn’t last long because of the presence of Tyrone Rush.
“I lasted at tailback about one day,” Satterfield said. “Coach (Bobby) Wallace had the faith in me to move me to fullback. Being in the backfield with Tyrone really took the pressure off of me.”
Satterfield went on to be very successful at UNA. He finished his career as UNA’s third all-time leading rusher with 2,817 yards and helped the Lions win their first Division II championship in 1993.
On Saturday, Satterfield will take his place among several of his former teammates when he is inducted into the UNA Athletic Hall of Fame.
The 23rd hall of fame class also includes: former golf All-American and current Lions’ golf coach Stuart Clark, All-GSC and Academic All-America first baseman Dr. Steve Kosa, three-time All-GSC and three-time Academic All-GSC softball selection Michele Logan Hyde, former football letterman James “Buddy” Moore and record-breaking basketball standout Louis Newsome.
The group will be formally inducted in a ceremony Saturday at 9 a.m., at the Performance Center on the UNA campus as part of the 2012 homecoming celebration.
