Introduction to the Athletic Hall of Fame
The Magruder High School Athletic Hall of Fame was created in 2002 to honor those who have made outstanding contributions to the Magruder athletics program. In 2002, a group of varsity coaches, athletic director (Karl Heimbach) and principal (David Steinberg) helped create the Hall of Fame by adopting the structure of the Hall of Fame and the selection criteria. Late that year the first selection committee was formed. In the fall of 2003 the first inductions took place and to date over 50 athletes, coaches, administrators and community members have been honored. Anyone can nominate a former student-athlete, coach, administrator or community member. For many years inductions took place annually. Magruder currently holds induction ceremonies every 5 years. The next induction ceremony is scheduled for fall of 2023. The deadline for nominations for the induction class of 2023 will be May of 2023.
Inductees are honored at halftime of the Homecoming Football game each year and at an awards dinner the following night. Each inductee receives a plaque to commemorate their contributions to Magruder athletics. A similar plaque is also hung in the Magruder Athletic Hall of Fame outside of the main gym.
