The Scottsboro basketball program and the Scottsboro Tip-Off Club recently announced that they will host a Jackson County Co-ed Alumni Basketball Game to benefit the Jackson County Sports Hall of Fame. Tip-Off Club President Robin Shelton along with coaches Jason Bell and Brandon Childers recently announced the benefit event.
Since 2014, the Jackson County Sports Hall of Fame has inducted a group of members into the Hall of Fame yearly. The Hall of Fame not only hosts a yearly banquet, but also works tirelessly to preserve the memories of past and present Jackson County athletes and coaches. In 2017, the Hall of Fame also began presenting one senior male athlete and a senior female athlete from Jackson County with annual scholarships.
The game or games, depending on how many former players sign up to play, will be held on Saturday, November 11, at Scottsboro High School’s Hambrick Hall, beginning at 6 p.m.
Former players, age 40 and above, from all high school programs in Jackson County are eligible to participate. Teams will be made up of both male and female players from across Jackson County. The public is invited to attend the games.
During halftime Hall of Fame inductees will be recognized.
Former players already signed on to play are Lacy Mathis McIllwain, Ledelphia Moser, Erica Scott, Kenny Hill, Kareem Battles, Keion Doss, Robert Fanning, Tristan Sexton, Kipp Tinker, Lebron Craft, Terrance Meade, Win Harbin, Robert Moser and Patrick Patterson. The sign-up window remains open for former players to participate.
