New life has been given to the Superior-Douglas County Athletic Hall of Fame. Left without a governing body and defunct since 1998, Hall of Fame memorabilia has been taking up space in the garage of Superior High School Activities Director Ray Kosey. The Hall of Fame was originally started in 1964 and photos of current members were once featured in the Wessman Arena lobby.
