Temple, a clinical psychologist and 1986 graduate of DePauw University, who has been named to the Geneva (Illinois) High School Athletic Hall of Fame. Today's Chicago Daily Herald reports that Dr. Temple and two other 2008 inductees will be honored Saturday night during halftime of the Geneva-St. Charles East basketball game.

"After senior quarterback Dave Pease went down for the season with a knee injury late in the first half at Morris during Week 5, Temple [then a sophomore] made the most of his opportunity, rallying Geneva for the first of his 19 career victories while at the helm," writes Craig Brueske. "During Temple's senior season in 1980, Geneva went 8-1 with the lone loss coming to eventual state champion Morris."

The article adds, "Temple graduated as the Viking career record holder with 26 touchdown passes and 10 TD runs. He also was a 3-year starter at guard for basketball coaches Bob Schick and John Barton, earning All-Little Seven honors as a junior and senior."

Temple's DePauw experience is mentioned in the piece, which points out that he "established a clinical psychology practice after serving as director of clinical training for the Kane County Circuit Court."
