Candidate Criteria: Candidates for selection as athletes, coaches or athletic directors must have been affiliated with Esko High School or Esko residents at the time of their achievements. Exceptions may be permitted if, for example, an Esko graduate excels elsewhere at a high level in a sport that he or she learned in Esko or in a sport not played in high school. Modern Era athletes must have graduated from high school at least 10 years prior to becoming eligible. Legacy Era athletes must have graduated from high school 40 or more years prior to becoming eligible. Coaches and athletic directors must have completed their time at Esko at least five years prior to becoming eligible. Teams must have achieved exceptional success at least 10 years prior to becoming eligible. Special contributors may be nominated because of extraordinary service to Esko sports as, for example, longtime devoted fans, school administrators, game officials, trainers, managers, journalists or broadcasters. Eligibility will be based on, among other things, length and degree of dedicated service, and may include candidates who are continuing to serve the school or community in some capacity at the time of nomination. As a minimum standard for eligibility, an athlete must have been named to an all-state, all-section or all-conference team; or set a state, section or school record; or have been inducted in a state or conference hall of fame; or achieved notable success at the college or professional level.
