HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES

Six new members will be inducted into the Nexstar Sports Hall of Fame during the Nexstar Sports Awards on Thursday, June 23, 2022.

A 12-person committee voted to determine the Class of 2022 Hall of Fame inductees. The committee is comprised of retired coaches, past and present members of the media, and a Hall of Famer inducted in 2019.

Over 100 Texoma athletes or coaches were considered for induction, and the list continues to grow as history reveals itself and new names are added.

The goal of the Nexstar Sports Hall of Fame is to have members serve 3-to-5 year terms as voters so new voices can be added to the voting process.
