ABERDEEN HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME
 
In 1998, Jeff Snell, the athletic director and life long Aberdeen Bobcat fan, realized a personal dream of forming an athletic Hall of Fame to help recognize and celebrate some of the most storied individuals in Aberdeen's long and rich athletic history. Since then, each year, a committee of community members gathers to select entrants into the Hall of Fame. Induction occurs annually in June at a banquet honoring that year's senior class athletes, and the Hall of Fame members.
 
Following are the inducted members of the Hall of Fame, listed by the year of their induction. Biographical information will be added as time permits. Please click on the name of the inductee for biographical information. Should anyone have any updates to the information for any of the inductees, please contact Derek Cook (dcook@asd5.org).
