Three of the best athletes in Belton High School history were honored Saturday by being inducted to the Wall of Honor. Max Hogan, Hadley Young and Levi Jordan qualified for the Belton Athletic Wall of Honor and were inducted.
"This is a special day. These kids have worked hard to achieve something special and today we honor them. You have brought recognition to our community and our school," said Joe Pirtle who, along with Dr. Billy Wilbanks, created the Wall of Honor.
The following are the partial achievements of the three athletes that were included along with their picture from their playing days at BHS.
Max Hogan qualified for the Belton Athletic Wall of Honor by making All-State in baseball in his junior and senior years. He was a two-year starter at second base for the Tiger varsity and was chosen to play in the Coaches' Association All-Star Game and Team Texas, which matched top players from across the nation. He signed to play at Dallas Baptist for the 2012-2013 season.
Hadley Young scored more goals in a season than any other Texas soccer player as a junior in 2011 and as a senior in 2012. She was named a Texas All-Star by ESPN Rise in 2011 & 2012. Young set the Belton record for most goals in a season (41) in her junior year and tied that mark in her senior year. She also holds the school record for career goals with 119 in 109 games.
Levi Jordan was a "double qualifier" for the for the Belton Athletic Wall of Honor as he was named All-State in football as a senior in 2011 as a punter and in track and field by winning a silver medal in the discus at the 2012 state track meet. He signed with UT—San Antonio for track and field and plans to compete in the decathlon.
