One of the greatest scribes ever to pick up the pen, he was a key contributor to the media and sports information world.

Tom Drew was the second representative of the media to be named to the Hall of Fame, after a career that took him from Huntsville to the college ranks and then the pros, finally landing him in the Valley, where he became a legend for his work ethic and way with words.

Drew worked in sports information for West Texas State when that school had Mercury Morris and Duane Thomas, and then did a turn with the Los Angeles Stars of the ABA as director of media relations.

After working at the Edinburg Review and Brownsville Herald, he joined the Valley Morning Star and from 1974 to 1991 he led the charge, once earning Sports Writer of the Year from the Texas High School Coaches Association.
