Vinyard, star from 1968, among new Hall of Fame class
Kenny Vinyard landed at Texas Tech somewhat by chance. He landed in the Tech Athletic Hall of Fame based on what he did with the opportunity.
Vinyard, an all-American kicker in his senior season of 1968, is among eight who will be honored today at the annual Texas Tech Athletic Hall of Fame and Hall of Honor induction ceremony.
Vinyard lettered as a Red Raiders kicker and punter from 1966 through 1968 after arriving from Amarillo High.
