"I am honored and humbled by it. I didn't see this coming," said Schlafer Wednesday afternoon. I have been very fortunate to work with wonderful, wonderful people. I don't know who nominated me, but I am very grateful."

Schlafer has spent nearly 40 years in education as a teacher, coach, and administrator. He has worked in the Monroe and Cumberland County school systems, as well as a couple of schools in the Knoxville area. He has been extremely involved with the Tennessee School Boards Association, and has received numerous accolades from TSSAA for his service to high school athletics.

The Hall of Fame luncheon will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 20. The luncheon is to not only honor the new inductees and their families, but to honor all past inductees into the TSSAA Hall of Fame.
