The Limestone County Sports Hall of Fame was formed in September of 2002 by a group of people seeking a way to honor past and future athletes, coaches, and others who have achieved fame in the world of sports.

These individuals who will be honored must either call Limestone County home or have lived here in the past.

Recognition shall come at the annual Limestone County Sports Hall of Fame Recognition Banquet sponsored by the News Courier. Proceeds from the Hall of Fame events go to funding sholarships of an Athens or Limestone County student.

Recognition shall also come through the public display of a plaque to be located in a place of public inspection.

To be eligible for induction into the Hall of Fame, the person must meet the criteria established by the Hall of Fame Board of Directors. The criteria for selections is listed on the nomination form.

The public is encouraged to make nominations. Once an individual is nominated, his or her nomination will be presented to the Board of Directors for consideration each year.

We hope that you will help us honor our own who have made outstanding contributions in athletics.

We are more than proud to honor them.
