Raines High School graduate Harold Carmichael was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Wednesday as a member of the Centennial class.

He becomes the second former Raines graduate to be inducted. Safety Brian Dawkins was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame last year.

Carmichael, a 6-foot-8 wide receiver, played with the Philadelphia Eagles from 1971 to 1983 and with the Dallas Cowboys in 1984, finishing with 590 receptions for 8,985 yards and 79 touchdowns.
