Byron Ferguson Receives Howard Hill Award

Internationally acclaimed exhibition archer Byron Ferguson was presented with the Howard Hill Spirit Award at the recent Howard Hill Southeastern Classic traditional archery tournament in Alabama.

More than 400 people were in attendance when Classic organizer Terry Harris presented Ferguson with the award. The event was held June 2-3 at Tannehill State Park west of Birmingham, Ala.

The award was given to Ferguson for his lifetime dedication and achievements in traditional archery.

“When I began this archery tournament many years ago I wanted to put on the very best traditional archery tournament,” Harris said. “I also didn’t want to take using the name of Howard Hill lightly. I wanted to find a way to recognize an individual each year for their contribution and dedication to traditional archery.

“I know that traditional archery has no better friend and ambassador for our sport than Byron Ferguson. For this year’s Howard Hill Spirit Award there was no other choice, and I was honored to present this award to him.”

“It’s an honor to receive such a high award,” said Ferguson, who lives in north Alabama. “Howard Hill was and still is my hero. The work Terry Harris does to promote the sport of traditional archery is exemplary.”
