Description 2013 Jim Honeywell Sports Hall of Fame Plaque. Wood and acrylic plaque commemorating Jim Honeywell of Jefferson High School and Stanford University who was inducted into the Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame on June 11, 2013. Plaque includes image of Honeywell and a brief biography: "One of the finest all-around athletes ever to perform in northern San Mateo County, he excelled on the football field in the 1950s. By his senior year at the Daly City school, his name was at the top of the list when it came to gridiron excellence. An honorable mention prep All-American, he was named Player of the Year in Northern California. At the U.S. Naval Academy, he played on the school's much-heralded Orange Bowl team. He was a U.S. Marine fighter pilot during the Vietnam War, participating in 240 combat missions. Later, he became a member of the Society of Experimental Test Pilots." 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. Black-and-white image of Honeywell is in the upper right hand corner and Hall of Fame logo is in the upper left corner.
