The structure of this web site is to honor those individuals that have devoted their lives to serving Arizona's youth with leadership, excellence, and success. The men and women inducted into the Arizona High School Athletic Coaches Hall of Fame are the epitome of their profession and are being honored by their peers. As of this writing 210 great coaches/educators have been inducted into this place of honor. The Hall of Fame inductions began in 1984 with 32 charter members. Usually a group of 5 new worthy coaches are added annually after a preceding member and/or the Executive Board induction committee nominates and then selects the candidates on the basis of their tenure, merit, and other exemplary characteristics. We hope you enjoy moving through this history of excellence in Arizona High School Athletics. You are navigating through a membership of coaches that have all been a coach for 20 years in the same sport, more than one sport, had unparalleled success, and/or have served their respective coaches' associations in various volunteer capacities. Enjoy this trip down memory lane.
