  • Tell City Hall of Fame loses 2...

    I was in favor of Tell City High School's starting its athletic hall of fame for several reasons long before it became a reality in 2004.

    For one, it should make current Marksman athletes aware that the school has a rich athletic tradition.

    But the biggest reason is it gives former superstar players and coaches a chance to reminisce with their fans and be the recipients of applause in Tell City's gym one final time.

    The importance of that is felt more keenly when a member of the school's hall of fame passes away.
