The Marshall County Sports Hall of Fame banquet will be held June 5 beginning at 6 p.m. at Lake Guntersville State Park.

There will be no Class of 2021, instead the class of 2020 will be inducted this year due to the cancelation of the event last year.

Shannon Allen is the Marshall County Sports HOF president. He released a statement about inducting the class of 2020 in 2021:

"We voted not to select a Class of 2021," Allen said. "We chose to do that when we decided to postpone the 2020 induction class banquet until June 5, 2021. We wanted to give the class of 2020 its proper due, and we didn’t think we could pull off 2 banquets in the same year. We don’t plan to make skipping a class a trend."

The Class of 2020 members who will be honored at the 2021 banquet 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, and the father of Bill Battle, the former Alabama athletics director.
