Marengo County Sports Hall of Fame selection process under way

Nominations for the Marengo County Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2014 have been received and are currently in the process of being reviewed by the selection committee.

Tom Boggs, chairman of the Marengo County Sports Hall of Fame, announced that the five new individuals will be announced following the review process. Boggs said that any nomination not chosen for this year’s class will be retained to be reconsidered for the 2015 class.

A sellout crowd is expected at the induction banquet on the second Monday in February, and ticket information will be announced as soon as possible.

In addition to the main event of recognizing new inductees, the program will include a meal and recognition of past inductees. There will also be a championship team recognized, which will be the 1967 Marengo County High School football team, which, after a perfect season, was selected as the first officially sanctioned Alabama High School Athletic Association Class 1A champion.

There will also be a senior student athlete from the county presented with the Hall of Fame College Scholarship Award.

The sixth annual class promises to continue the tradition of showcasing the athletic talent produced from Marengo County.
