Who We Are
The Jack Link’s Minnesota High School Basketball Hall of Fame was established by a group of coaches, fans, journalists, historians and aficionados to create a lasting tribute to high school legends of the sport.
Inductees are chosen and honored for their statistical records, team success and positive values as role models for Minnesota’s youth, improving, promoting and serving high school basketball in Minnesota. The organization is managed by a Board of Directors that meets to review Hall of Fame candidates annually.
The Minnesota High School Basketball Hall of Fame is a registered, tax exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Contributions are tax deductible.
