MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Three Madison natives were inducted into the 34th annual Wisconsin Soccer Hall of Fame in a ceremony Saturday night.

John Reddan currently lives in Madison and served as a player and coach for the Madison 56'ers. Darrell Duerst also lives in Madison and was a player and coach for the Madison 56'ers. Jules Boykoff currently lives in Portland, Oregon, but served as a player for the Madison 56'ers.

Chairman of the Wisconsin Soccer Hall of Fame Mark LaPorte said anyone is welcome to nominate former players, coaches, administrators, or referees from Wisconsin.

There are no general rules to enter. Nominations must be submitted by Sept. 1. Inductees are chosen at the October selection meeting. The selection committee has nine individuals. Five are current active members of the Hall of Fame, and four represent each of the state soccer associations, including youth soccer, adult soccer, coaches, and referees.

LaPorte said the Hall of Fame is meant to recognize excellence in soccer and act as an annual reunion for players, coaches, administrators, and referees.

The Hall of Fame currently has 300 total members dating back to 1977.
