MUCK CITY HALL OF FAME
Inaugural Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony:
Date: Saturday November 6th @ 6pm
Location: Belle Glade Museum (Former Library)
The Muck City Project's mission is to preserve the local Muck City sport’s history, revitalize the community,
and honor excellence within the Glades Community while making a connection between generations of
people who enjoy sports on every level.
The Muck City Hall of Fame was created after years of strategic planning to pay homage to the amazing athletes and patrons that have come out of "The Muck." With unprecedented athletic roots and history, there is no other place on earth that puts out the amount of sheer talent as Muck City. It is time to honor and cement these athletes and patrons legacy as a part of the Muck City Hall of Fame for all to remember.
“Honor the Heroes, Preserve the History, Promote the Values and Celebrate the Excellence”
From its humble beginnings in the early 1900’s to the present day, the Glades Community has grown in both size, stature and athletic dominance. Recognized as the fastest place on earth and home to over 75 NFL players, 400+ collegiate athletes, and thousands of high school athletes throughout the years, it is doubtful that even the most optimistic of those who planted the foundational roots of this great community could have envisioned the successes it would bring.
Intended to be an exhilarating museum and attraction, the Muck City Hall of Fame will pay tribute to the talents and triumphs of the Glades greatest legends. Chronicled within the walls of the Hall of Fame will be the stories, circumstances, and memorabilia of play that bring to life words such as courage, dedication, vision, fair play, integrity and excellence.
The Muck City Hall of Fame works collaboratively within the Glades community to ensure that each person has the opportunity to share their story and experiences through their years in The Muck. The cooperative efforts of all of these individuals have contributed greatly to the overall success of the initial launch of the Muck City Hall of Fame. In turn, the Hall strives to serve as the best historical showplace and repository for the athletics within the Glades community.
