Ask Allan Strange how often he’s been mistaken for his famous brother and he laughs.

“A better question would be how often not,” he says.

Strange, who will enter the East Tennessee State University Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday, has had to explain for years that he’s not his identical twin, Curtis, who won a couple of U.S. Opens.

Allan, who played golf at ETSU in the 1970s, earned All-American status in 1976 while leading the Bucs to a seventh-place finish at the NCAA Championship. He finished fourth individually.

Forty years later, he’s being inducted into his alma mater’s Hall of Fame.
