“Through the Tunnel” wins best documentary in Miami

MIAMI — “Through the Tunnel,” METV’s documentary about Lincoln Memorial High School football at the onset of integration, won the Best Historical Documentary Award Sunday at the DocMiami International Film Festival.

Accepting the award at Sunday night’s ceremony were co-producer Judge Durand Adams, METV’s Charles Clapsaddle and Henry Lawrence, the former Lincoln star and Manatee High alum, who helped the Oakland Raiders win three Super Bowls.

Eddie Shannon, Lincoln’s iconic coach, was ill and did not make the trip.

Nearly 40 Lincoln alumni were on hand for the screening Sunday afternoon, including Moody Johnson, the film’s narrator.
