Kilgore College Athletics announces newest Hall of Fame inductees
Kilgore College will once again honor former standout athletes and contributors at its annual Hall of Fame Weekend, Oct. 26-27.
A benefit golf tournament is set for Friday, Oct. 26, and Hall of Fame inductees will be introduced during a luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, in the Devall Ballroom on the Kilgore campus.
Hall of Fame members will also be recognized during halftime of the KC versus Tyler Junior College football game at 3 p.m. the same day
“I always look forward to the Hall of Fame event because it is one of the most inspirational and motivational events of the year,” said Jimmy Rieves, athletic director. “It is such a hard task to narrow down all of the great student-athletes and contributors who have come through our doors over the years to select a few outstanding people each year to honor.”
The golf tournament will be a two-man scramble at Southern Hills Golf Course in Gladewater, sponsored by KC and Trinity Mother Francis Hospital. All proceeds will benefit KC Athletics.
According to Rieves, there is still plenty of time to register a team.
Also, the college looking for hole sponsors for the golf tournament or any business that can donate door prizes.
