The Eagle River-Northland Pines High School ­Athletic Hall of Fame Committee announced it is scheduled to induct two standout athletes, an athlete who returned to coach at Pines, and a student who went on to be a prominent coach, Friday, Aug. 21, though the induction ceremony could be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The four athletes to be inducted are Tim McCormick, who graduated from Pines in 1982 and earned eight letters in football, hockey and track; and 1982 graduate Rob Mohn, who played football, basketball and track. David Cox, a 1984 graduate who played hockey and golf for Pines and returned to coach the Eagles over two periods, will be inducted as a player and coach. And his sister, Cathy Newton, a 1978 graduate, will be inducted for her success as a high school volleyball and softball coach.

McCormick was a member of the 1981 Hall of Fame football team and undefeated Lumberjack Conference champions. In his senior year, he achieved first team all-conference honors as an offensive guard and defensive end. He was the Eagles’ team captain, and named most valuable lineman and tied for Lumberjack Conference’s Lineman of the Year. He also was named a Channel 7 All-Star and earned all-district recognition.

Mohn was on the same football team that compiled a 10-0 record in the Lumberjack Conference and won a quarterfinal playoff game against Little Chute. He played wingback on offense and safety on defense and was named to the all-conference first team and the all-district team as well as the Channel 7 special mention team.

Cox played golf and hockey for the Eagles, advancing to the State tournament in golf in 1982 and ’84 and hockey in 1983 and ’84, winning the 1984 State Hockey Championship. Cox went on to play Junior Hockey in the U.S. Hockey League for the North Iowa Huskies before accepting an academic-athletic scholarship to play at Augsburg University, where he was an Academic All-American, earned all-conference honors, and was named captain and most valuable player his senior year. Cox also has coached the Eagles for nine seasons at Pines, from 1992-’96 and 2016-present, leading five teams to the State tournament 

Newton moved to Wausau in 1985 to teach and coach volleyball and softball at Wausau West.
