To be eligible for the Walt Johnson “Buckaroo” award, you must have participated in THREE sports for all FOUR years of your high school career! The idea of being an all-around athlete and competing in three sports was something that our friend and fellow coach, Walt Johnson felt was very valuable for all student-athletes.
Our Pendleton High School athletic memorials can be found in the Buckaroo Hall of Champions (BHC), outside of Warberg Court. All memorials either recognize outstanding coaches or athletes that have made a tremendous impact on Pendleton High School. Student-athletes at Pendleton High School are chosen annually by their varsity coaches to be recipients of these memorial awards.
