GREENVILLE – The South Carolina Football Hall of Fame has opened member voting for its Class of 2020.
Four with Laurens County connections are on the ballot: Art Baker, a Presbyterian College graduate; Jack Adams, of Laurens and PC; King Dixon of Laurens; and Bob Waters of PC.
The SCFHOF is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit tax-exempt organization, in its eighth year, whose mission is to honor the state of South Carolina’s football legends and be a catalyst for youth, work-force, and community development.
This year's ballot boasts 50 nominees of players, administrators and coaches, plus 10 additional Legacy nominees. A Legacy nominee honors those that are considered outside of the modern era and/or have passed away. Each man grew up in the state of South Carolina, went to, coached at one of the 14 collegiate football programs in the state, or has had a positive and significant impact on the game in South Carolina.
A part of the voting process for the SCFHOF is that fans who become members can cast a vote. New for the fall is a monthly supporting membership level that includes the right to vote for the annual inductee class and the Blanchard-Rogers Award, presented by Hale’s Jewelers. You can sign up for this new membership here: https://scfootballhof.org/membership/join/.
Memberships not only give the fan a voice but also helps support SCFHOF community programs that educate, empower, and encourage our youth.
Member voting is done online at https://scfootballhof.org/membership/vote/2020-scfhof-inductee-first-round-ballot-august-24th-december-9th/.
The first-round voting period (August 24-December 9) provides members one opportunity to vote for up to four nominees for the Class of 2020 and one legacy nominee, either from the ballot that has been provided or a “write-in.” The final round of voting features the top names from the first round and will be conducted between mid-December and mid-January 2020. The Class of 2020 will be inducted into the SCFHOF at the organization’s Eighth Annual Enshrinement Ceremony, scheduled for April 2020, at the Hilton Greenville.
