ATHLETICS HALL OF HONOR
Baptist Bible College’s Defenders Athletics program established The Hall of Honor in 2006. The distinction recognizes former student-athletes, coaches, administrators, special individuals, and teams. Membership is based on excellence in athletic achievement and demonstrated Christ-honoring values while involved in the college’s athletics programs.

Induction is the highest athletic honor the College bestows. Membership not only recognizes extraordinary achievement, it also sets an example of the distinct Christian values and attributes the BBC athletics program desires to cultivate in present and future participants.
