The Caldwell County Tigers honored the newest Hall of Fame class at halftime Friday against Mayfield in Princeton, inducting Will Barnes, Cameron Williams, Marc Kanipe, Chad Lane, Bob Hudson and statistician Gary Goodaker. All six inductees made their impacts in the early- to mid-1990s and in the mid-2000s, with Goodaker being the only non-player inducted.
Barnes, a current coach on the Tigers sideline, played quarterback under his father, David Barnes, from 2006-2008.
Barnes threw for nearly 6,000 passing yards his career and threw for seven touchdowns against Reidland in 2008, still a Tigers record.
Williams was also a quarterback, while also making noise as a receiver for the Tigers with 837 receiving yards in 2006 under David Barnes in his first season. Williams also scored six touchdowns against Crittenden County in 2006 in a 48-21 win, tying a record at the time.
Kanipe, a 1991 graduate, was a quarterback back in 1990 on a Tigers team that finished 9-2, and played alongside current interim coach Wayne McGowan .
Lane also played with Kanipe the early 1990s as a lineman. Lane graduated in 1993 and played college football.
Hudson, who went on to play for the Murray State Racers, made his name as an all-state lineman on the Tigers in the mid-1990s under Pat Gates.
Hudson was crucial in paving the way to the Tigers team that eventually won the state championship a few months after his graduation in December 1998 when they beat Danville in the title game. Both of Hudson's Tigers teams won nine games in his upperclassmen years.
Goodaker, a 1991 graduate, has been the team statistician for the Tigers for more than 20 years, going back to Caldwell County's state championship run.
