Falkville’s Keith Wilemon makes Alabama High School Sports Hall of Fame

Falkville’s Keith Wilemon has been selected for induction into the 30th class of the Alabama High School Sports Hall of Fame. 

Wilemon came to Falkville in 1989 to coach football and track. It was his passion for track that helped to make the Blue Devils’ program one of the best small-school programs in the AHSAA. 

During his time at Falkville, he has led the Blue Devils to four state boys’ outdoor track championships. He also served as an assistant for four boys’ and two girls’ state indoor champions. His teams have finished state runnerup 15 times. 

His girls teams have won 14 section titles and eight Morgan County titles. His boys have won four section titles and nine Morgan County titles. 

He was named the NFHS Alabama Track Coach of the Year in 2014. 

Falkville’s track program is now led by his son, Jace Wilemon, and he serves as a volunteer assistant. Falkville has won two more state boys’ titles under their leadership. 

He is one of 12 major contributors to prep athletics in Alabama selected in the 2019 class that will be enshrined at a banquet held in March of next year. 

The others who were selected are administrator Luke Hallmark; football coaches Carrol Cox, Steve Mask and Fred Yancey; basketball coaches Tommy Lewis and Yvonne Simmons; track coach Aaron Goode; wrestling coach Joseph Dasaro; soccer coach Rick Grammer; wrestling official Toney Pugh, who was also a wrestling coach and football coach; and coach/administrator Samuel Hamp Lyon
