Randolph Henry High School has a long and storied athletic tradition. It is the mission of the Athletic Hall of Fame Committee to select athletes, coaches, and contributors that meet set criteria, keeping in mind that the order is not an indication of the nominees’ value or worth. In order to recognize the contributions of all its athletes, coaches, and significant contributors throughout its proud history, the Randolph Henry High School Athletic Department establishes this Athletic Hall of Fame Committee Constitution whose purpose is to honor by enshrinement, those individuals who had exceptional athletic careers and to recognize those contributors who have established and/or enhanced the proud tradition that is Randolph Henry High School.
The Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be an annual event sponsored by the athletic department of Randolph Henry High School. It will be a two-day affair. Day one will consist of a reception prior to a football game which will be determined each fall, and the presentation of the inductees will be at half-time of this game. Day two will consist of a formal induction ceremony where the inductee will be presented by a person of his/her choice (i.e. former coach, player, faculty member, etc.)
