The YHS Athletic Hall of Fame was organized to maintain the rich heritage and tradition of successful athletic programs at Yuma High School. The Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes, preserves, and honors the athletes, coaches, and individuals who have made significant contributions to YHS athletic programs. Many individuals have been influential in the “Criminal Tradition” of excellence and have had exemplary accomplishments on the athletic programs. The Hall of Fame honors the contributions and accomplishments of those individuals who are worthy of recognition and examples for others to emulate. Nominees for the Hall of Fame must exemplify the highest standards of sportsmanship, ethical conduct, and moral character. We will judge all candidates on their significant and/or long-term contributions to athletic endeavors.
