The members are Barb Agostini, contributor; Andy Huxford, contributor; Danny Cocks, athlete; Jake Snow, athlete; James Farelly, athlete; Gina Davis, athlete; Georgia Marshall, athlete; Paul Dosch, athlete and coach; and Richard Huggins, coach.

On Oct. 4, all of them will be recognized at the high school’s homecoming football game, which starts at 7 p.m. On Oct. 5, they will be honored at the 10th annual Hall of Fame luncheon. It starts at noon and will take place at the student activities center at the high school, 1101 5th St. Tickets are $10 and can be bought at athletic director Alex Moore’s office or at the door the day of the luncheon.

The master of ceremonies for the event is former BCHS coach and athletic director Robert Northridge.
