The Georgia Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame recently celebrated their class of 2018 inductees and a former Dawson County coach was one of them. William Howington received a letter in January letting him know that he would be inducted into the National Hall of Fame, and on May 6 the Georgia Chapter of the NWHOF gathered together at the Sonesta Hotel in Gwinnett County to celebrate and induct the state’s seven newest inductees. Howington has been a prominent name in the wrestling scene in north Georgia since the 1970s when he was a star athlete at Jefferson High School. He was a varsity letterman in football, track, and his true passion: wrestling. While in college at the University of Georgia, Howington began officiating and continues to be a referee 45 years later.
