Payne, Roy, Vachon headline Maine Sports Hall of Fame inductees

BANGOR, Maine — Ralph Payne is regarded as the best running back ever to play for Brewer High School and among the best in Maine history.

On Sunday, at his enshrinement into the Maine Sports Hall of Fame, all he could talk about those with whom he shared success on the Witches’ powerhouse teams from 1968-1970.

“More than anything else, this day was made possible by the great Ken Perrone,” Payne said of the legendary Brewer coach, who was unable to attend the ceremonies at the Cross Insurance Center because of complications from a recent knee replacement surgery.

Humble Brewer football great hangs up his (work) uniform

... Payne is revered as the best running back ever at Brewer, where he and the Witches ran roughshod over the competition while posting a 30-2 record from 1968-1970. He racked up 45 career touchdowns, despite playing only a half in many games.

Coach Ken Perrone was quick to lift his starters and reward many other players with game action when Brewer was comfortably out in front.

Payne rushed for 1,239 yards and 17 touchdowns during his senior season, helping the Witches attain a ranking of No. 1 in New England and No. 5 in the country.
