The Wiregrass Sports Hall of Fame was formed in January 1992 by Hawk-Houston Boys and Girls Club
as a means to seek ways to better honor past athletes, coaches and support personnel
who have achieved fame in the world of sports. These individuals must either call the Wiregrass home
or have lived here in the past. Recognition shall come at the annual Wiregrass Sports Hall of Fame Banquet
sponsored by the Wiregrass Hall of Fame, Inc., which was established as an incorporation in 2003.
Recognition shall also come through the public display of a picture plaque to be located
on the first floor of the Dothan Civic Center. To be eligible for induction into the
Wiregrass Sports Hall of Fame, the individual must meet the criteria established
by the Hall of Fame Selection Committee.
