The following are organized by class year and position. 2016 marked the first class of the OIL Hall of Fame. It covered all players who spent three seasons in the OIL and had retired before March 6, 2016.
Every top-tier sports league has a hall of fame, and the OIL is a top-tier fantasy football league. So why should it be any different? That is why, in 2016, the OIL was proud to announce the OIL Hall of Fame.
Where is it? Our Hall of Fame is located at Camp Gruber, Oklahoma. Why Camp Gruber? Well, that's where the SECFOR mission began. Every member of the 158 (and every member of the SECFOR mission that gave rise to the OIL) has spent time at Camp Gruber. The Pro Football Hall of Fame is located in Canton, Ohio, even though no professional football teams are based there anymore. The same is true for Camp Gruber: no one lives there now, but it's the birthplace of the OIL and a place to where many of our members still make an annual pilgrimage.
What is the criteria for the OIL Hall of Fame?
Must be retired or, if not officially retired, must have not played in two consecutive seasons;
Must have played in the OIL for at least three seasons.
Who selects the OIL Hall of Fame inductees? The Hall of Fame committee, which consists of the overall OIL Commissioner, each Assistant Commissioner that has been in the OIL for three seasons, and each OIL champion who has been in the OIL for at least three seasons.
The commissioner and assistant commissioner positions get one vote automatically. Each championship is equal to one vote as well. So, here are the votes:
ScottBuehre (PFC commish and one championship) and Zackary Brake (one championship) do not have a vote this year as they have not amassed three years in the OIL yet. They will gain voting privileges in 2018.
