In the beginning

This year marks the 14th anniversary of the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame grew out of an interest, spearheaded by Frank Minnifield, to bring current and former pro football players from Kentucky together to host football clinics for underprivileged youth. In 1994 and 1995, Minnifield hosted a clinic at the Aspendale Housing Projects and Henry Clay High School, and invited other retired NFL players to join him in leading it.
From there, they created a new chapter of the NFL Players’ Association in Kentucky in 1996. Since its founding, the group has raised more than $600,000 for youth organizations. Later, the Hall of Fame was established, and a selection committee chose the first class of athletes to be inducted. In 2016, the Hall of Fame will induct its 14th class of athletes into its ranks.
The purpose of the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame is to appropriately honor persons that have brought significant recognition to the state of Kentucky, or have by their unusual successful service achieved significant accomplishment on behalf of their school, or have by a significant act or contribution distinguished themselves as an unusual former National Football League player, coach, referee, owner, management, etc. or have been a significant or unusual supporter of Pro Football. Kentucky is the only state to have its own Pro Football Hall of Fame.
