Leon Donohue, a former head football coach for the Knights, was presented with a trophy for his induction into the school's Hall of Fame at the annual auction held Thursday at the Holiday Inn in Redding.
"Rather than tonight being about me, tonight is a chance for me to say thank you to a lot of people," Donahue said.
Donohue has spent 26 years coaching at Shasta College and still teaches at the institution.After five seasons as assistant football coach starting in 1971, Donohue became the head coach and continued to do so until 1996.He finished his career with 76 wins, the most in school history, and four league titles.
Prior to his Shasta College days, Donohue was a standout offensive lineman at San Jose State University.He spent eight seasons in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys.
With all those accomplishments, some in the Shasta athletic department thought something special was needed to honor Donohue.
"I just brought it up at a meeting," said Craig Thompson, Shasta's current football coach, who played linebacker under Donohue in 1983-84.

Donohue was the most choked up when he introduced his family.But, having some of his old playing buddies and former players on hand almost had as much of an impact on him.
"It really is an honor to have this for me," he said."But to have old friends here makes it extra special."
As for the auction itself, the money raised has been increasing since its inception eight years ago.
