Davie athlete becomes hall of famer

In April, Warren Fleming will be inducted in Augusta Military Academy Sports Hall of Fame for his contributions in the AMA football program. Warren Fleming is a graduate of Davie County High Schoolís class of 1971.
This was the first graduating class at Davie County High that was integrated. Warren is the son of the late James and Janet Fleming of North Cooleemee and the first of his family to march in Davie Countyís integrated graduating program.
Fleming was the first string tight end as a junior on the Davie High.
Fleming said ěFootball isnít about size and strength; itís about having the heart to play the game.î Fleming was selected as the Most Improved Player at the Davie County Football 1971 Athletic Banquet Awards Ceremony.
Flemingís speed was once clocked at 9.9 in the 100 yard dash and he averaged over five yards per carry. In 1972, Fleming was recognized as one of the best running backs in the Military-Academy Football League. The league consisted of Randolph Macon, Greenbrier, Hargrave, Massanutten, Staunton, Fork Union and Fishburne.
Flemingís leadership on and off the field was recognized by the Augusta Military Academyís coaches, administrators, cadet core and townsfolk of Waynesboro and Staunton, Va.
He now hosts the annual Staunton African American Festival. After graduating from AMA, Fleming received football offers from institutions such as Livingstone College, Xavier University, University of Utah and Banner-Elk Junior College.
