You will see some big sports names in town this weekend as the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame gets ready to induct the 2012 class.
One of the folks going in was born in Dublin. Sally Smalley Bell has spent a career officiating basketball games. "I'm a sports fan, so this whole weekend is going to be great," Bell said with a smile.
Bell currently coordinates the officials for the Atlantic Sun Conference.
Bell had fifteen Final Four appearances and also did some work at the Olympics in Atlanta. In 1991, she received the Naismith award as the top women's official in the country.
She says she never felt like she had to punch a time clock to blow the whistle. "When I first started I couldn't believe I got to do something I loved that much, it was just that fun. I mean, honestly I think I would have paid to do it," Bell said.
