Complete profiles of each inductee is available by clocking on their name or photo. Information on former inductees is available below.

 

Bogard is a 1956 Sycamore High School graduate who was an outstanding basketball and baseball player. He earned All-Ohio basketball honors in class B and scored 2,135 career points with a high game of 51. He played first base on the 1954 state runner-up baseball team and the 1955 state semifinal baseball team.

 

Dillion was a 1946 grad of Harpster High School who became a state, national and international track and field star as a shot and discus thrower. He won the OHSAA shot put championship once for Harpster, and while at Auburn University, he won two NCAA and one AAU discus championship along with winning several Southeastern Conference throwing events. In 1952 at the Helsinki Olympics, he won the bronze medal in the discus to become Wyandot County’s only Olympic medalist. He also made and played on the Auburn football team without ever playing high school football.

 

Karg was a standout athlete at Upper Sandusky High School and at Ohio Northern University in volleyball, basketball and track and field. At one time she held the Rams’ single-game scoring record in basketball. In track and field, she was the school record holder in the shot put and discus and participated in the state meet. While at ONU, she accomplished a rare feat in lettering all four years in volleyball, basketball and track and field for a total of 12 letters.

 

Schreck was a three-sports athlete at Wynford High School, who became well known when he came back to Wynford after playing both football and baseball at Taylor University and became a teacher and baseball coach. He coached for 34 years, including 26 as head baseball coach, going 404-191 while leading the Royals to the state championship in 1982. The school’s baseball field is named in his honor.

 

Trout is a 1969 graduate of Riverdale High School was who went on to compete at Findlay College. He quarterbacked the 1968 Falcons football team to the school’s first undefeated season, leading the team in scoring with 80 points, and was named first-team All-Ohio on defense. Later, Trout became a well-known Ohio high school official in both boys and girls sports.

 

Wentling was a 1931 Carey High School graduate who was an accomplished three-sport athlete. While playing on Bowling Green State College football team, a sport writer was so impressed with his ability on a losing team that he nicknamed him “Moses” in hope he would lead the team out of the wilderness. Wentling became a successful coach at Carey in various sports, and he guided Carey to Wyandot County’s first state baseball tournament in the early 1940s.

 

Carey High School’s boys basketball teams of 1965-66 and 1966-1967 were called “The Golden Years.” The Blue Devils had a 43-3 record over those two years with CHS’s first and only perfect regular season in 1965-66. They also won their first North Central Conference championship and won the sectional when there were only two divisions in the state. Every game during those years was a sellout as Carey fans show up at all the home and away games.
