Aggie and Marshall County legend

Albertville basketball legend Alex Beason is a member of the Marshall County Sports Hall of Fame’s class of 2020. He finished his high school career as the leading scorer in Marshall County history with 2,459 points.

On July 22, the Marshall County Sports Hall of Fame board of directors voted to move the 2020 induction banquet to Saturday, June 5, 2021 at Lake Guntersville State Park Lodge.

The class of 2020 will be inducted at that time. There will not be a class of 2021.

The board of directors wants the banquet to be as special for the class of 2020 as all the banquets have been for all the MCSHOF inductees.

Purchased and complimentary tickets that have already been requested and or paid will be honored in June 2021. The board appreciates the flexibility of the inductees as the state and nation are navigating through this unprecedented health crisis caused by COVID-19.

More information will be disseminated in the spring of 2021.

Members of the 2020 class are:

Alex Beason, Albertville, basketball

Ken Gillilan, Albertville, football

Dennis Hicks (deceased), Boaz/Albertville, football and administration

Drew Guess, Arab, football

Miranda Keller McCoy, DAR/Guntersville, basketball

Greg Bonds, Douglas, basketball and administration

Rick Moody, Guntersville, basketball

William Battle Jr. (deceased), Snead State, coaching and administration

This is the 19th induction class of the MCSHOF, which enshrined its first group of inductees in 2002.

The eight 2020 inductees increase membership in the hall of fame to 176.

Congratulations to Alex an outstanding player.............

I thought the leading basketball scorer in Marshall County Basketball History was Kent Looney with 3324 points.

Four year starter his team won in 1973—24-8

1974—29-2

1975—29-2

1976—27-1

When is Zeke Bentley going to be inducted? I think he still holds some rebounding records for Albertville.
