Football, Basketball, Baseball 1947-51

John E. Webb was the type of player who made the mold for such multi-sports standouts and modern superstars as Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders. He lettered in three collegiate sports football, basketball and baseball. He was selected the outstanding defensive halfback for three consecutive years in conference play.

As head coach of Granard High School in Gaffney, South Carolina for ten years, Webb compiled a high school winning record far exceeding that of his contemporaries. He officiated football and basketball in the Piedmont area and numerous regions in the lower section of South Carolina, and gained the reputation of being a model teacher and mentor for his students.

Webb is very active in community and civic activities and remains loyal to his alma mater. He is supportive of Benedict's fund raising efforts and has volunteered to assist in the restoration of Morgan Hall.
