I’d waive the five year thing and put Larry in.

He’s done more for the school than any athlete we’ve had in the last 20 plus years.

That is great. Here are my thoughts for the inaugaral class.

Student Athletes: Cornbread Maxwell, we have had some top flight soccer players that probably need to be here, maybe someone that played MLB?

Coaches/Admins: Lee Rose, Jeff Mullin

Key Contributor: Ike Belk, Mac Everett

I guess Cesar Sayoc is not eligible?

Does our Hall of Fame = Retired/Honored Jerseys? If so, this will be easy, but what is the point?

Love this!

I’ve got Judy Rose locked in for my first pick. Please respect my decision.

Maybe not first class, but Corey Nagy has definitely been one of the best golfers to come out of Charlotte That went pro and really put the program on the map during his career here.

Have we had a better baseball player than John Maine?

As far as basketball, I think Eddie, Henry, Maxwell, Jobey would be logical choices, maybe not all first class but eventually.

Also, Lutz statue MUST have stache.

And Leemire Goldwire gets in just for having the best name ever.
