    no tripp welborne , what a joke.I will give them a pass this year for not nominating him but if Tripp doesn’t get in next year would be pathetic to see. You can overlook a 2 time all american,

    I agree Keith. Still the best HS player I’ve ever seen. 2 time all american at Michigan. Was such a good athlete that although he went on to play Football in college he was selected to play in EAST WEST all star basketball game.


    I agree tripp was a very talented athlete along wih a good guy. if this is really a guilford county hall of fame there is no way this guy shouldn`t be in. this is only my opinion, but without injury i think he would have been a high level player in the nfl.

    How about Baseball Coach Jim Morris of the Miami Hurricanes. He is from GSO Smith and Elon. How many national titles has he won?

    just a note, in that I did nominate Tripp Welborne this past year for the Guilford County Sports Hall of Fame and hopefully he will get in next year .
