  • Class of 2019 Inductees

    Terrill Cameron, football/basketball/baseball (Class of 1995)

    Cameron was involved in athletics in every semester of his time at Eaglecrest, as he played football in the fall, basketball in the winter and baseball in the spring for his entire prep career before he graduated in 1995. The three-sport standout was one of the members of the Raptors’ only state championship-winning football team, which came in 1993 in Class 5A when he was part of a dynamic backfield along with Damian Brown (part of the original class of the Eaglecrest Hall of Fame). Cameron established the school record for career touchdown receptions with 22.

    Lindsey Keller (Easton), track/cheer (Class of 2009)

    Keller (now Easton) was elite in everything she did athletically in four years at Eaglecrest before she graduated in 2009. She was a standout on the school’s cheer team that won the 2008 state championship (and was selected to the All-Elite squad in the process), while she also played a large role in track & field. Keller (Easton) qualified for the Class 5A state track meet all four years and qualified for the finals as both a sophomore in 2007 (when she placed ninth) and as a senior in 2009 (when she was the 5A runner-up to Kami Mendez of Denver East), while also running sprint relays. She was a team captain for both teams as a senior at Eaglecrest, when she was selected as the school’s female athlete of the year. Keller (Easton) went on to compete for Colorado State University, where she was a six-time All-Mountain West Conference performer, and later joined the track program as an assistant coach and Director of Operations & Recruiting Coordinator.

    Jenny Potts-Baca, Cheer/Performing Arts (Class of 1996)

    Potts-Baca won two Class 5A state championships as part of Eaglecrest’s powerhouse cheer program in her four years and was picked for the All-State Elite Team in 1995. In addition, Potts-Baca served as the school’s Student Choir Director and was named to the All-State Band and All-State Choir in 1996. She held the lead role in Eaglecrest’s well-remembered production of “Into The Woods” as well. Potts-Baca went on to compete on the dance team at the University of Northern Colorado as well as some professional signing with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra.

    Jack Stephens, Performing Arts (Class of 1995)

    Another of Eaglecrest’s long line of multi-talented performing artists, Stephens played a crucial role as the chief technical student that managed the technology for all concerts, special events and productions for the school’s first four years. After he trained at the University of Colorado Denver, Stephens has gone on to work with numerous Broadway productions that have toured the country and abroad in a variety of capacities, including Miss Saigon, the Blue Man Group, Rent and more. With almost two decades in professional theater, Stephens is now touring the U.S. with Miss Saigon.

  • Class of 2018 Inductees

    April Thomas, cross country/track & field (Class of 2005)

    Thomas is Eaglecrest’s most accomplished female cross country runner, as she holds the school mark for highest finish as the Class 5A state cross country meet with her third place finish in 2002. Thomas finished only behind Smoky Hill sisters Megan and Katelyn Kaltenbach — who combined to win five state championships — in an Aurora-dominated race. She went on to run cross country at Colorado State University, where she became the only Rams’ female runner thus far to win the Mountain West Conference championship when she took the 2007 conference title. The season before her showing at the 5A state meet, Thomas and the Eaglecrest girls — which also featured her twin sister Melissa — won the only Aurora City Championship for the program. In track, April Thomas placed in the top seven of both the 1,600 and 3,200 meter runs as a senior and set a variety of school records in distance events.

    Melissa Westhoff, girls soccer/cross country (Class of 2012)

    Westhoff had a prominent position in the Eaglecrest athletic program from 2008-2012 (when she earned seven varsity letters), as she excelled in girls soccer and cross country and earned the school’s Female Athlete of the Year honors as a senior. On the soccer pitch, she started for the Raptors on defense for four seasons, captained the team for her final two seasons, during which she also made the All-Centennial League and All-Aurora first teams. Westhoff went on to have a four-year career at the Colorado School of Mines, where she played in 88 games (67 starts) and was a team captain and All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference first team selection as a senior. In cross country and track, Westhoff still ranks in the top 10 in school history with her times in both the 5K and 3,200 meters. She placed 13th at the Class 5A state cross country meet in 2009 and 16th the season before.

    Basil (BJ) Williams, football/basketball/track & field (Class of 2006)

    Williams won multiple letters in three different varsity sports in his time at Eaglecrest, as he earned four in football, three in track & field and two in basketball. His greatest accomplishments came on the football field, where he was a three-year starter for the Raptors and wrapped up his career with a big senior season in 2005 when the speedy pass-rushing defensive end led the Centennial League with nine sacks (with 18 of his 59 tackles going for losses) on his way to all-league and Sentinel All-Aurora first team honors. Williams went on to play four seasons with San Diego State (three as a starter) and had a brief cup of coffee in the Canadian Football League with the Montreal Allouettes.

    Gage Wooten, basketball (Class of 2009)

    Wooten was a key part of the group that helped the Eaglecrest boys basketball program begin its run as a consistent power under former coach John Olander. The 6-foot-4 forward earned a spot in the Raptors’ starting lineup for four years and performed at an All-Centennial League first team level in three of those season. Wooten, a versatile scorer and dogged rebounder, helped Eaglecrest make it to the Class 5A semifinals in 2008 as well as capture back-to-back league championships. As a senior in 2009, he was voted by coaches as the Centennial League Player of the Year, earned a spot on the All-State first team and was selected to play in The Show All-Star Game, then put on by the Denver Nuggets. Wooten went on to play in college at Minnesota State Mankato, where he earned All-Northern Sun Intercollegiate second team honors with the Division II Mavericks.
