The nine honorees will be inducted at the 2015 Florida Sports Hall of Fame Enshrinement on November 17 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Hollywood.

"This will certainly go down as one of the strongest Hall of Fame classes we've been fortunate to welcome," FSHOF President Barry Smith said.

We are delighted to bring our enshrinement activities to this part of the state for the first time."
