Hallandale will roll out the red carpet for two-time Pro Bowl guard Davin Joseph on Friday when the former Chargers great returns for a jersey retirement ceremony. Joseph, on a bye week with the St. Louis Rams, is ready to soak up the adulation from a Hallandale community he maintains an everlasting bond with.
“Getting my number retired is a special accomplishment, an achievement, an honor because it’s not just for me,” Joseph said. “It’s really to reflect there are a lot of positive, great people in Hallandale who have influenced my life, that have allowed me to be successful. It’s something for my closest friends, family and everybody who invested something in me. Going to college and becoming a first-round draft pick is a gift for everybody.”
Butch Rolle, a former star for Hallandale who played for the Bills, will also have his number retired at halftime of a showdown for first place in District 15-6A between Hallandale (4-0) and Coconut Creek (3-1).
The ceremony will give Hallandale the opportunity to thank Joseph, the No.23 overall pick in the 2006 draft, for setting the gold standard for Hallandale football and his staunch support of its athletic program. Through the Davin Joseph Foundation, all team uniforms and pre-game meals were paid for last season.
Never miss a local story.
Wearing his familiar No.77 at Hallandale, Joseph used the strength and dexterity that made him a two-time state champion wrestler to wreak havoc on both sides of the ball. Joseph was named the Broward defensive player of the year as a senior when he recorded 100 tackles and 24 sacks. Joseph starred on the offensive line for Oklahoma before being drafted by Tampa Bay.
