Do you, or do you have a kid that is a member of a Sports Hall Of Fame?

Over the last 15 or 20 years, High school Sports/Athletic Hall Of Fames have become more prevalent. And college Hall of Fame's
as well. Have you ever been nominated, or elected? Or do you have a kid that has for his or her athletic achievements? Discuss.

    Hall of Fame for drinking by my fraternity. 🍺

    I'm not sure if drinking is considered a sport?

    Great topic but given the amount of people that post I’m going to bet you might have 1 poster who can relate

    I did pretty well in the "Ladies Chasing" events...does that qualify? Didn't get a trophy, but managed to be awarded with other benefits. B)

    I have a good friend who is in her college HOF (volleyball), but no family and certainly not myself. I do, though, hold the freshman record (for all time, they outlawed the competition after my freshman year) in the "shot a minute" drinking contest.

    My brother-in-law is in the Bay County (MI) Sports Hall of Fame, once as an individual and once as a member of a Colt League baseball team that made the World Series finals.

    My college HOF for Cross Country

    When I was 18, I scored nine points during the entire season on my Church League Basketball team. I was no Larry Bird, but I did shoot .571 from the field. Lacked playing time....coaches decision.


    Always looking for original, better date VF20-VF35 Barber quarters and halves, and a quality beer.

    Congrats. Just wondering, what are some of your achievements that got you into the Hall of Fame?

    No, as avid a sports fan as I am, I couldn't get my son interested in sports. I do have a nephew who was just recently put into his high school baseball hall of fame. He did play in college, division II, and tried out for a few major league teams when he got out...never did get a call. One of his high school teammates also played college ball, not with him. He did get a shot as an OF with the Blue Jays. After a year in the minors, they liked his arm more and converted him to a pitcher. He did make it to the majors, looked pretty good as a reliever. They signed him to a multi year contract and the following year he blew out his arm. Never pitched again.

    My father was recently inducted into his High School Hall of Fame and earned All City honors in the early 1960s...

    ...the city was NYC. Sport was basketball...

    Curious about the rare, mysterious and beautiful 1951 Wheaties Premium Photos?
