Induction Weekend

January 22, 2021 – Class of 2021 Announcement

The Hall of Fame Board of Trustees have made the decision that there will not be a Class of 2021 due to the added expense of inducting 2 classes and how that would impact the length of the ceremony, etc. Following a very difficult year financially, this was the best decision we could make. Nominations will be accepted as normal and can be submitted at any time. The January 31 deadline will not apply this year. Nominations for the Class of 2022 will be accepted from now until January 31, 2022. The nomination form and additional information can be found by clicking here.
