Friday night, Grayson County High School Athletics inducted three former athletes into its Hall of Fame.

The first to be inducted was former top tennis player Tyler W. Green, who was a member of the Grayson County tennis team from 1990-95. Green went on to play for the Centre College tennis team from 1995-99. He is currently an Associate Professor of Chemistry at Thomas Moore University.

Dale Baldwin was honored for his role in Grayson County High School’s track and field, where he broke pole vault school records. He went on to attend the University of Kentucky where he served as a cheerleader for four years and earned a degree in Business Administration.

Last to be inducted was Robert “Doug” Thompson, who led impressive junior and senior years on the Grayson County High School football team. During his senior year, he averaged 176 yards per game. He went on to be named Freshman of the Year at Georgetown College. Accepting the award were his children and grandchildren as Thompson passed away in 2015.
