Hall of Fame announces 2025 Class

The Board of Directors for the Glynn County Sports Hall of Fame is pleased to announce its 2025 Induction Class.

The new Hall of Fame class includes Antwan Andrews, former Glynn Academy running back who set the county’s high-school career rushing record while playing for the Red Terrors; Katie Burnett, who won a state golf title at Brunswick High before going on to play in the collegiate and professional ranks; Willie Fisher, a former GA basketball standout who is the Terrors’ all-time leading scorer; Bob Parsons, a top player on Glynn’s 1973 state championship baseball team who went on to excel in college before also reaching the pro level; Johnny Tullos, the star running back on GA’s 1964 state championship football team who went on to play at Georgia Tech; and Adam Wainwright, a former first-round draft choice out of Glynn Academy who enjoyed an illustrious career in major-league baseball before retiring after last season.

The 2025 Hall of Fame class was finalized this week by the Hall board. It will be the ninth class inducted into the local sports hall of fame which currently includes 47 members.

 The induction banquet for the 2025 class will likely be held sometime next summer. A banquet date should be announced by the fall.

“We’re excited to present another Hall of Fame class to Glynn County,” said Kevin Price, president of the local sports hall. “It’s another outstanding group, one full of great honorees who each have their own long lists of amazing accomplishments and triumphs and all six inductees are very deserving of this recognition by their home community.

“I want to commend our board members for the time they devoted to this important process and the serious thought they gave it each step of the way.  

“Once again, we look forward to bringing this induction class together next year to celebrate their individual athletic careers  and collective accomplishments with their friends, families and our Glynn County sports community.”

In alphabetical order, here’s a quick look at all six members voted into the 2025 Hall of Fame class:

Andrews graduated from Glynn in 2000 after capping an outstanding four-year career with the Terrors in which he rushed for 4,489 yards which was a prep record at the time in Glynn County. It still ranks as the county’s public-school career- record mark.

He led GA in rushing all four years he played while scoring 45 touchdowns. Andrews ran for a school-record 1,674 yards as a junior while also scoring 22 touchdowns that season, another school single-season record.

Andrews played at Georgia Military College and Albany State after high school.

Burnett also had a record-setting career at Brunswick on the golf course. She was a four-time team MVP while winning the 2008 individual state title in Class AAAA.

Burnett accepted a golf scholarship at South Carolina, where she would become an All-SEC player and also an All-American for the Lady Gamecocks. She graduated as the program’s all-time career scoring leader and also earned national and conference academic honors.

Burnett went on to play professionally, earning full-time status on the LPGA Tour.

Fisher was a prolific scorer while playing basketball for Glynn in the 1980s. He led the Terrors in scoring three straight seasons, averaging 29.4 points a game as a senior which is the school’s all-time best single-season mark.

Fisher scored 1,578 points in his prep career to become Glynn’s all-time scoring leader.

He played two years at Lake City (Fla.) Community College, where he earned All-State honors before finishing out his college career at Jacksonville State University, where he started at point guard for two seasons and led the team in assists both seasons.

He finished ranked eighth in program history in total assists despite playing only two seasons with the team.

Fisher passed away in 2018.

Parsons was a key player on Glynn’s state title team in 1973. He was 7-0 that year as a pitcher with a 1.06 ERA and led the Terrors with a .430 batting average.

He played college baseball at David Lipscomb, where he helped the team to the 1977 NAIA national title. Parsons was a two-time team MVP and also an NAIA All-American.

He helped the Bisons to a school-record 50 wins in 1978 and also was part of a school-record 60 double-plays that season as the starting second baseman. That year, he also set a school-record with 99 hits while batting .402 for the season.

Parsons signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates organization after college and was later inducted into the David Lipscomb Athletics Hall of Fame.

Tullos was the star running back on Glynn’s 1964 state championship football team. He led the Terrors in rushing three straight seasons. Tullos rushed for 1,220 yards as a senior in 1964, which was only 37 yards shy of the school single-season mark at the time held by local legend George Rose who was part of the inaugural Glynn County Sports Hall of Fame induction class in 2012.

Tullos was on the receiving end of that famous game-winning scoring pass in the final seconds of the South Georgia Championship Game against Columbus that got Glynn into the state championship game. The pass covered 82 yards inside the final minute and was thrown by quarterback Tash Van Dora who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2023.

Tullos was an All-State pick after the season. He signed with Georgia Tech and played as a freshman, but an ankle injury hampered his collegiate career.

Wainwright was drafted by the Atlanta Braves as a top pitching prospect after a stellar prep career at Glynn in which he also batted over. 400 three times and was chosen as Georgia’s Player of the Year in 2000.

He was ultimately traded to the St. Louis Cardinals while in the minors with the Braves and rose to stardom in the Cardinals organization after making his debut in the majors in 2005.

Retiring after the 2023 season, he closed his career with 200 wins to become one of only 122 pitchers in baseball history to reach that milestone. He also totaled more than 2,200 strikeouts to rank among only 66 pitchers all-time to fan that many batters.

Wainwright pitched in two World Series, was a three-time All-Star and twice finished as the runner-up in the National League Cy Young Award voting. Wainwright and his longtime catcher Yadi Molina have the most wins and starts together as a pitcher-catcher combo.

More detailed bios for each member of the 2025 induction class will be released at a later time.

The Glynn County Sports Hall of Fame formed in 2011 as a non-profit organization and honored its first induction class the following year.

The Hall of Fame’s main display which includes plaques for every inductee is located at Southeast Georgia Health System in Brunswick.

The Hall also has a display which includes the names of all inductees by class inside the Athletics Center which overlooks the playing field at Glynn County Stadium. This wall display also has a listing of all the state championship teams from the local high schools.
