GREENFIELD — Lou Hurrle is a Hall of a guy.
The longtime Greenfield resident will be inducted to the Indiana Football Hall of Fame on Thursday — the third time Hurrle has been welcomed into an athletic hall of fame.
Hurrle will be honored by the state’s football shrine for his 51 years of service as an official. As a sophomore at Indiana Central College in 1958, Hurrle first donned the black-and-white stripes, and he continued officiating past his retirement as a teacher and administrator in 1995.
“I didn’t have many problems,” Hurrle said, explaining his longevity. “I got along with the coaches and the players. For the most part, I enjoyed everyone I worked with.”
