Wildcats Official Sponsor

Hall of Fame

PrintOxford Athletic Hall of Fame

The Oxford Community Schools Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Intramurals is proud to continue its sponsorship of the Oxford Athletics Hall of Fame!

An all-star selection committee was chosen in 2009 by the athletic department to assist in nominating, researching and inducting deserving members from the past.

The Oxford High School Athletic Hall of Fame was established as an extension of the athletic department to provide a means by which to assist the school in recognizing the efforts and achievements of various past student-athletes, coaches, administrators and contributors to OHS Athletics while reinforcing the department’s rich sense of history and tradition.

In each of the first two years of the Hall of Fame, up to ten (10) members will be inducted and will be considered the Hall’s “Charter Members.” Every year thereafter, up to five nominees will be inducted. Nominees must be formally nominated by any member of the public before May 1 of the current year to be considered for induction the following year. If you know of a deserving person, please nominate them by downloading the form below and returning it to the athletics office.

HOF Committee Nomination Form

In summary, the purpose of the Hall of Fame is three-fold:
1. To honor the accomplishments of past student-athletes, coaches, administrators and special contributors
2. To serve as a positive example of what is possible to achieve for current and future Wildcats
3. To re-connect with alumni, fans and contributors from the past.

Nominees must essentially come from one of four (4) different categories:
1. Student-athletes
2. Coaches or Administrators
3. Distinguished Alumni
4. Special Contributors
