WZBD broadcaster AJ Kalver, former Columbia City coach Randy Kearby and current East Noble coach Keith Hoffar were among those who received induction honors Sunday Sunday at the annual IHSWCA Hall of Fame banquet held in Greenwood.
Kalver, the former Bellmont coach, was inducted as a coach in 2010 and received his latest honor because of 35 years of wrestling broadcasts, starting with WADM in 1980. He was introduced by South Adams coach Barry Humble, who had nominated Kalver for the honor.
