The Wellsville Athletic Hall of Fame got a little larger this past Saturday, August 25.  Eight new members were inducted into the hall at ceremonies held at the high school.  It was the sixth class inducted.  The last induction was held during the All-Class Reunion in 2010. 

Enshrined this year were two members of the Senior Era – Raymond “Pick” Rolley, Class of 1924 and George Calhoun, Class of 1928.  Mr. Rolley was the senior “Pick” and we’ve been told there is now a fourth Pick “waiting in the wings”. 

Members of the Senior Era selected is Sherrill Jackson, Class of 1972, Carrie Cornwell, Class of 1987, Eric Dowling, Class of 1987, Jared Mike, Class of 2003, Gabrielle Burns-Baker, Class of 2004 and Howard Gilger, Coach & retired teacher. 

Their pictures are now displayed on the wall-of-fame at the high school along with their fellow inductees.

 Congratulations to all…

Can you tell me if Randy Young has been inducted into the HOF? If not, I don't understand why!!!! He holds the record for the most wins of any WHS girl's coach, he is the only WHS girl's coach that took the team to the state. It doesn't make sense to me that he hasn't been inducted. If he has that is great news, but I can't remember ever seeing anything about it. Someone should look into that.

We're not entirely certain but we do not believe he is. However, Mr. Young just retired this year and we believe there is some stipulation in the HOF by-laws pertaining to that. He has to be out of the system so many years to be eligible for consideration. Like fine wine he has to age a bit more.

We're sure any member of the HOF Committee would be glad answer your question.
