The Laurens County Sports Hall of Fame began in 2016, but the groundwork for its existence began many years ago. The school gymnasiums, YMCAs, neighborhood sandlots, church gyms, community centers, youth sports leagues, high school and collegiate playing fields all cultivated the long and rich history of sports in Laurens County.


The individuals honored by the Laurens County Sports Hall of Fame are reflections of the dedication and devotion of many people who love sports. For that, we will always be grateful, and through those efforts, we see lives that have been made better and lives that have added to our community.

Nominations are currently open for the 2018 induction class.
