With our 20th season just around the corner the league has inducted our first class into the Los Angeles Electric Football League Hall of Fame.
The new members to the hall are Chet Hamptonstall , Vince Peatros, Mike Turner, Eric Robinson and Dave Campbell. All are very deserving of the honor as they set the bar for what is the league today.
Chet- was one of the co-founders of the league in 2000. He played with the league for three seasons before leaving for Colorado. Chet not only was a fine coach but a master painter. Many of his teams are still running in the league today.
Vince- what can you say about the G.O.A.T. He has mentored many in the league about scheme and bases. His knowledge of the game is second to none. Vince helped found the league in 1998 when we played in his garage.
Eric-has been the league commissioner for going on 10 seasons now. He has a SHOW title and 3 Open Run titles. The league has always been a focal point to him. League first. He is also one of the Co-founders of the Open Run.
David- the leagues first two time champion and co-founder of the Open Run Tourney. Commissioner of the league. Dave also was behind the early graphics for the league. The shield logo and The SHOW posters were his designs.
Mike- one of the founding members of the league. Founder of the Dual in the Desert which at the time was the first tournament held on the west coast. One of the most prolific passer the league has seen. He has won the Open Run tournament and has been a runner up twice trying to win The SHOW.
Each coach will have a plaque with the new league HOF logo and the year inducted along with “Founder ” in scripted onto their plaque. The league again would like to thank the first five for their contribution, innovation and fellowship to the Los Angeles Electric Football League.
