Matt Belcher was recently named a Bucksport hometown hero and BHS Athletic Hall of Fame inductee.

He described how he’s been able to help the Golden Bucks and why he does it.

“I enjoy volunteering the time with the team to do something active. I’m an equipment manager, team manager, coach, cheerleader during the games, ball boys, all sorts of jobs. The coaches ask me to do the jobs, and I do it for them. I feel proud, humble, outstanding, and excellent to help out.

Belcher is a 1998 Bucksport graduate who survived cancer and has also been working at the local Hannaford for 24 years.

Charley Wentworth, Jr., Cassidy Adams, Sherri Bridges, Laurie Gilley, Mike Grindle, Chris Jones, Mattie Lord, Jonathon Pelletier, Ike Snowman, Richard Wagenknecht, and Joel Wardwell join Belcher in this year’s Hall of Fame class.
