Several Forester standouts have garnered regional, and even national, recognition during their time on the court in forest green and white. Since 1994, nine have been named members of the all-conference first team. Notably, Jeff Shepherd, David Porter, Adam Hill, Alex Kock, Doug Sheckler and Caleb Kennedy were each named Crossroads League Player of the Year. Kock also captured the title of National Player of the Year for the 2006-2007 season.

Steve Platt, who went on to coach at HU for 14 seasons, sits atop the all-time Forester scoring list with 3,700 points. Platt was also inducted into the NAIA Basketball Hall of Fame in 1987. Platt, Ralph “Boag” Johnson and George Grosskoph are all members of the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame.
