TSHF recognizes the positive attributes of inductees such as hard work, team work, dedication, focus and how these attributes are needed to achieve success in life. Using these champions as role models, TSHF works to inspire youth to follow in the paths of these great teams and athletes.

We’re proud of Trey’s accomplishments and are happy to have him on our team.” said Tim Anderson, Director of Public Relations and ProStaff for Mossy Oak. “What’s really neat about Trey’s induction into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame is their involvement with youth and sports.
