The deadline to nominate players for the Gainesville High athletics Hall of Fame is Jan. 1. The eight-member inaugural class (six athletes, one team and one athletic supporter) will be inducted during a ceremony April 20 at Scott’s Downtown in Gainesville. To be eligible, a candidate must have graduated from either Gainesville High School or the former E.E. Butler and Fair Street high schools no less than 10 years before induction.
Candidates will be considered for either their athletic achievements or “outstanding service to athletics in Gainesville.” Each inductee class will also include a team that “achieved and performed at the highest level of competition.”
Nomination forms are available at the school’s athletics website: www.gainesvilleredelephantathletics.com.
