The Alabama High School Athletic Association announced late last week the next 12 people who will be inducted into their Hall of Fame.

Two of them have Guntersville ties.

Mark Jones, who grew up in Guntersville and worked many years in the sports program at Jacksonville State University, is a noted sports official and is going in for that.

Ronnie Stapler, the legendary coach, coached Guntersville’s varsity boys from 2003-08, guiding the Wildcats to a berth in the Final 4 state tournament.

Biographies of both men will be in Saturday’s paper.
