Athletic Hall of Fame Established


Ottumwa High School has a long tradition of outstanding athletics. In order to recognize this tradition of excellence, OHS recently established the Ottumwa High School Athletic Hall of Fame. Community members and alumni are invited to nominate former athletes and former or current coaches or administrators who are the best of the best.  Nominations for 2021 are due by September 3. A selection committee will select individuals to be inducted annually. Those persons will be honored during Homecoming week each fall.

To be considered, athletes must be out of high school for a minimum of five years. Induction includes all-state selections, state championships won, school records held, athletic accomplishments after high school, and conference championships.

Criteria for induction of coaches/administrators includes number of years served as a coach/administrator at OHS, state and conference championships, career record, and overall impact on Ottumwa athletics. Please submit one form per nomination.
