RHS grad a 'Hoosier Legend'

Vagas Ferguson made quite the impression on Brian Hammons.
Ferguson, the standout running back from Richmond who later starred on the football field at Notre Dame and was a first-round NFL draft pick, is a few years older than Hammons.
But, that didn’t stop Hammons from being impressed at a young age with Ferguson.
“I remember him just destroying us in middle school,” said Hammons, a 1979 Anderson Highland High School graduate who now lives in Carmel. “I kept an eye on him. I’ve been aware of Vagas Ferguson for a long time.”
