Moby rafters to get new additions

CSU- SID - New banners honoring four individuals who have had their Colorado State University athletic jersey numbers retired will be in place Thursday in Moby Arena, Director of Athletics Jeffrey Hathaway said today.

Since the school opened in 1870, four student-athletes have had their jersey numbers retired: football player Thurman "Fum" McGraw (48), football player Eddie Hanna (21), volleyball player Sherri Danielson (12), and men's basketball player Bill Green (24).

The banners, displaying the jersey number, student-athletes' name and years of participation, will be hung from the catwalk above the Moby Arena court in time for Thursday night's women's basketball game between the Rams and San Diego State.

McGraw was the first football All-American in school history in 1948 and '49. He later served as the school's director of athletics for 10 years. He passed away in September of 2000.

Hanna was one of McGraw's teammates at Colorado State, then known as Colorado A&M, and passed away on a team train returning from a game played in Colorado Springs in 1949.

Danielson was a two-time volleyball All-American who was a member of the 1984 United States Olympic team. Green earned All-American honors in 1962 and '63 playing for legendary coach Jim Williams. Green was later an award-winning educator in New York City.
