LONDON - Twenty men who had a major impact on boys basketball in the 12th Region will be recognized this week in the inaugural class of the 12th Region Boys Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
The 10 players, five coaches and five contributors will be recognized Saturday at the12th Region Tournament championship at South Laurel.
Roscoe Denny, the former Danville coach and current South Laurel assistant, is president of the coaches' group.
"There were nominations by each school in the region," Denny said. "It was impossible to get all the deserving people in the first time. Many, many people should be in there and will be in future years."
The hall of fame covers the history of the 12th Region, including schools in the region that no longer exist, with the only stipulation being that player nominees must be out of high school for at least five years.
Denny said fans of 12th Region schools can also participate in the nomination process.
