Jay Blankenship of the South Carolina Department of Commerce talks about the importance of the South Carolina Football Hall of Fame’s Bridge Builder Program at the 2019 Enshrinement Ceremony.
We honor the state of South Carolina’s football legends, and be a catalyst for youth, workforce, and community development. It’s more than football….It’s Making A Difference Through Football
Who We Are
The SCFHOF is a charitable organization. We honor athletes, coaches, business, and media professionals connected to South Carolina who have made a significant and positive impact through football.
What We Do
South Carolina accomplishments are often overlooked resulting in a lack of respect and opportunities. The South Carolina Football Hall of Fame honors our legends and their stories of success to educate, empower, and encourage our communities.
US News.com ranks South Carolina students 43rd nationally in college and career readiness. As such, many students are being left behind because they are under qualified. The SCFHOF and its Bridge Builder Program educates, empowers, and encourages students to be successful in their college, career, and life endeavors.
Management of the SCHOF
The SCFHOF, its support, and its programs are maintained, developed, and managed, in part, pursuant to an agreement with Wyatt Sports, LLC d/b/a Wyatt Sports Marketing.
Any person who played, coached, wrote about or otherwise supported football at the highest of levels and either (i) did so in South Carolina, or (ii) did so elsewhere, but is a native of South Carolina, is eligible for consideration. The SCFHOF Board of Directors have the right to determine eligibility and those being honored in a given year.
Football provides young people with valuable life skills, and a platform for community betterment, but is under attack. The South Carolina Football Hall of Fame (SCFHOF) is a member-supported charity using football to positively develop our community. We rely on our corporate sponsors, members, donors, and volunteers to achieve our mission. Our Team has a wealth of experience and know how to lead and develop our programming and community initiatives.
Positively Developing our Community
The goal of the SCFHOF is “Making A Difference Through Football.” We do that by educating, empowering, and encouraging our youth and community. Our focus over the next year in servicing that goal is not to just develop the community but change lives in four major ways.
Aiding athletes making the transition from the field to their next career through our Business Connect program.
Being a catalyst for education and resources for our youth through our Bridge Builder Program
Using our resources and influence to aid other Charities
Developing a museum and leadership center (MLC) in the Upstate of South Carolina to honor our South Carolina football greats and to provide a leadership center for our innovative workforce and community events, and economic growth here in South Carolina and beyond
