Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.

It's an often-used adage and a fitting one for the trailblazers and titans of their respective fields.

This past weekend, disc golf, as well as the Frisbee world, lost a legend in Dr. Stancil E.D. Johnson, PDGA #009 and a member of the Disc Golf Hall of Fame.

He coined, among many, a phrase that so countless have heard: "When a ball dreams, it dreams it's a Frisbee."

Induction into the Disc Golf Hall of Fame is an honor reserved for only a very few of those who will ever pick up a disc. It is beyond a world record or championship title. It transcends celebrity and commercial success. It cannot be bought; it must be earned as much by character as by skill. It must be earned, most of all, through the respect of one’s peers.
