Coming Monday: The ESPN Dallas Hall of Fame

Starting an ESPN Dallas Hall of Fame? Yes we are. But the rest is up to you.

Beginning Monday, we’ll open voting for what we believe will open up intense debate to elect an inaugural five inductees. For one week, you’ll be able to vote on 20 Dallas-Fort Worth sports legends and determine which are most worthy.

We assembled a star-studded panel, which we’ll reveal on Monday, that cut the list down to 20 finalists. We’ll let them give their arguments, and try to sway your votes and we’ll let you discuss the candidates among yourselves.

There are players, coaches and owners from teams and schools around the metroplex. There are also some other famous sports figures who were born or lived in the DFW area.

We’ve given you a start, but we can’t wait to see what you come up with for the inaugural ESPN Dallas Hall of Fame class.

Check back and start voting on Monday, Aug. 8. We’ll reveal the inaugural class on Monday, Aug. 15.
