Description 2013 Randy Gomez Sports Hall of Fame Plaque. Wood and acrylic plaque commemorating Randy Gomez of Serra High School and College of San Mateo who was inducted into the Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame on June 11, 2013. Plaque includes image of Gomez and a brief biography: "For a lesson in sporting reinvention, look no further than Randy Gomez. At Serra High School, he was an all-WCAL baseball player; in addition, he was all-league in football as a defensive back/linebacker. At CSM, he switched to quarterback, leading the league in passing. Later, at the University of Utah, he wound up as the tenth-best passer in the U.S. in 1978. He led an epic second-half comeback against rival Brigham Young, throwing three TD passes as Utah pulled off a stunning 33-32 upset. He returned to the baseball diamond and hit .398 for the Utes. His baseball career culminated in a 1984 stint with the San Francisco Giants." Plaque and induction was sponsored by The San Mateo County/Silicon Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau in cooperation with San Mateo County Event Center and Media Sponsor The San Mateo County Times. Silver-colored plaque is mounted under acrylic onto a laminated wooden board by four decorative brass-colored screws and washers. Color image of Gomez is in the upper right hand corner and Hall of Fame logo is in the upper left corner.
