A street has been named after Great Britain and Warrington rugby league star Mike Gregory.
Gregory spent 12 years at Warrington as a player
The 43-year-old former Warrington Wolves and Great Britain captain died in November after a four-year battle with motor neurone disease.
Mike Gregory Street, a walkway at the refurbished Warrington Collegiate, was officially opened by his widow, Erica.
The father-of-two was well known for encouraging aspiring sports stars not to neglect their education.
As a lasting tribute to Gregory, a wall of fame and mural has also unveiled to name students who excel in both their education and sport at the collegiate.
Bob Eccles, friend and former Wolves' team mate, said: "Mike was genuinely a nice fella.
"Its superb that Mike Gregory's name become synonymous with education.
"It was something he punched through to the young people he coached."
Hundreds of friends, family, students and rugby players past and present attended the event.
Paul Hafren, principal of the collegiate, said: "Mike encouraged students not only to study sport with vigour but to carry out education with passion."
He played virtually his entire career with Warrington and also captained Great Britain to two Test series victories over New Zealand.
It is believed his illness was the result of an insect bite while he was on tour of Australia with Great Britain's academy team in 2003.
