HSC Hall of Fame Main Plaque

The mission of the Heidelberg Soccer Hall of Fame is to Celebrate and Promote the History, Honor the Heroes, Inspire future generations, Support the Development and Preserve the Legacy of Heidelberg Soccer.

The Hall Of Fame Process

There are two categories for nomination, players and builders (those who have contributed as managers and administrators).

The Hall of Fame Committee consists of the following distinguished and experienced HSC players and coaches: Stayton Green - Chairperson, Dick Day, Jack Fouts, Aaron Kushner, Brian Zura.

The Heidelberg Fire Hall has granted us a temporary home to display our HOF Awards. You can see them in person in the lobby of the Hall soon.

The Class of 2008 saw four players selected. They were officially inducted at an awards ceremony at the Heidelberg Fire Hall on Saturday, February 23, 2008.
