Albany Sports Hall of Fame seeks new nominees

ALBANY — The Albany Sports Hall of Fame, which will enter its 26th year in April, is already chock full of many deserving athletes.

But there’s still room for more, HOF president B.B. Rhodes said.

“Ten, 15 years ago, we had so many resumés, but lately it’s been slowing down and we know there’s a lot of deserving former (Albany) athletes out there we’d still like to get in — but they have to be nominated to do so,” Rhodes said. “It’s slowed down some (as far as submissions go), and we just want to remind folks that if you submitted a resumé before and didn’t get in, to please submit another one for consideration. We only induct four-to-six a year, and we don’t want anyone to be discouraged from trying more than once.”

Athletes can nominate themselves or someone else may do it, and resumés can be turned in to either Rhodes by calling (229) 436-2305, Albany HOF secretary Sonya Spillers by calling (229) 431-1264 or Dougherty County A.D. Johnny Seabrooks at (229) 431-3308.
