Delaware City Schools have inducted six new members into its Hall of Fame Friday.  Barry King (MBHOF Class of '94) was among the first senior class to graduate from Hayes High School, where he played football, baseball, basketball and ran track. King graduated from Hayes at age 16 and was a member of student council and served as student body president.

After graduation, King attended The Ohio State University for a year before returning to Canada and
playing basketball for five years at the University of Winnipeg. He was named Athlete of the Year twice at the university and was selected as All-Canadian in his final year. He was inducted into the Manitoba Basketball-Hall of Fame in 1994.

He returned to Delaware in the 1990s, where he worked for a steel processing company and as a
dental technician. He was active in his church and is spending his retirement with family and friends.
