Tim Brayboy '64
Brayboy, veteran public school administrator and longtime athletic
official, has been selected for induction into the N.C. High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) Hall of Fame.
Brayboy, a member of UNCP’s Athletic Hall of Fame,
will be honored during the halftime of UNC-Chapel Hill’s football
game with Maryland on November 12. The official induction will take
place next spring during a banquet at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill.
Brayboy, who lives
in Cary, is also a member of the N.C. Athletic Directors Association Hall of Fame.
“I think this ranks at the top of any awards I have received,” he said. “If you look at the who’s who in athletics in North Carolina, the people on the wall in the NCHSAA office, I never imagined I would one day be on that wall. I read about these people and heard about these people. Being beside them now is a tremendous honor.”
After three years in the U.S. Marine Corps, Brayboy enrolled at UNCP and earned his degree in health and physical education. He taught and coached until 1972, when he took a job with the N.C. Department of Public Instruction as director of middle and junior high school athletics. He remained in that position until 1995.
One of his major accomplishments since retiring was co-writing a book in 2002, “Playing Before an Overflow Crowd,” with Bruce Barton about the history of the Indian basketball league in Robeson and surrounding counties.
