With Naperville North inducting its 2010 Athletic Hall of Fame class tonight prior to the boys varsity basketball game against Wheaton Warrenville South, talk surrounding the eligibility of outgoing varsity football coach Larry McKeon may surface.
Guidelines pertaining to eligibility, established in 2006, say candidates who have won state titles are eligible for induction seven years after graduation. Under that scenario, McKeon can expect to be eligible for induction in 2017.
"That has been the case. Obviously, every year, they look at the by-laws and those kind of things," North athletic director Doug Smith said of the waiting period. "If they want to change those (rules), that's discussed by the board of directors."
