Fame

Leon Football Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame began in 1977 by Coach Gene Cox to pay tribute the Leon High Football Program and to those who by their hard work, dedication and competitive spirit unify all students, past and present. The Annual Hall of Fame Banquet is attended by inductees, family, friends, teachers and alumni to celebrate the legacy of the Leon Lions. The 2014 Annual Banquet will be held Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014 at 5:45 p.m. at the Tallahassee Civic Center. For additional information, please contact Candi Aubin at 508-3107.
