Hall of Fame induction: 2000
Bunny is a 1981 inductee into the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame. Blaney, though mainly known for his football exploits, was also an exceptional sprinter at Newark High School in the early 1950’s. He was the state’s Junior High Champion at 50 yards and 100 yards in 1949. He finished 2nd in 1950 in the 100 yards and was a state champion in 1951 and 1952 (where he ran the first :9.9 100 yard dash in the state).
In winning the 220 yards in 1952 with a time of :22.6, he broke the oldest standing state record in the books, which was set in 1932. He was also county champion in both the 100 yard dash (1951 and 1952) and the 220 yard dash (1952).
