ATHENS, Ala. — Limestone County celebrated the ten new members of its Sports Hall of Fame on Saturday. The banquet that honored ten former athletes and coaches took place at the Limestone County Event Center.

Here's the full list of the 2022 inductees (in alphabetical order):

  • Danny Anderson

  • Rashad Harris
  • Venard Hendrix
  • Walter Hill

"It's really a dream come true," explained Anderson, the current Head Boys Basketball Coach at Athens High School. "Growing up, you don't think about moments like these. As you get older, and you realize how important things are, it really puts things in perspective. Just to be associated with these people, it's a great honor for me." 

"It's a great honor," said Hendrix, the former Head Boys Basketball and Tennis Coach at Athens High School. "It's a dream come true, you play your career, you have a great time, you get into coaching, you coach young men, it's just great."

Hendrix added that he shares each personal accomplishment with every player he's coached.

"The awards that might've come my way, is there because of them. It's their hard work, they've worked. If it's state championships in tennis or final fours in basketball, they worked for it. It was their accomplishments. I was just a part of it and I was glad to be a part of it."

Philip Rivers was among those in attendance, due to a prior commitment. His father, Steve accepted the honor on his behalf.
