Following are members of the 2007 class of inductees:
Tom Ellis (Amelia High School class of 1958) lettered in football, basketball, and baseball and played before all-star teams were recognized in most sports in Clermont County. He was a starting end on the first Amelia varsity football team (1956-57 school year) and a starter on the varsity basketball and baseball teams that year. All three were unbeaten among Clermont County League competition. He played baseball at Morehead (Ky.) State and was drafted by the San Francisco Giants as a center fielder and first baseman.
Chris Anderson (1999) was the second Baron to earn All-Ohio status in football (the first was Kurt Franke, class of 1968, who was later drafted by the Minnesota Vikings). Anderson was a QCC-A all-star on both the gridiron and in track and field.
William Tabscott (1920) is the recipient of this year's Baron Award that is presented to a person who has been deeply involved in the success of the Amelia High School Athletic Department. He had served Amelia High School in many capacities for 38 years (1926-64). At one time or another he had been superintendent of Amelia schools, AHS principal and teacher, first-ever AHS athletic director, and coach. He competed in sports at Amelia.
