Nominate someone for the hof

The HOF Committee relies on nominations from the public and does not generate nominations internally. Further, the committee relies on the detailed information provided by the nominator about the nominee so that the committee may adequately evaluate each nomination. It is important that the nominator provide as much detail as possible regarding the history of the nominee’s athletic accomplishments. Please see the guidelines below for information regarding nominations. Nominations should be submitted to Athletic Clerk at Duncan High School: Carrie Ridley -
