BG Gould, Medford Sports Hall of Fame“BG” is a name that is synonymous with Oregon High School Sports. Born in Portland, Oregon BG moved to Medford in 1967 from Fremont, CA, where his dad got transferred from the Oakland Tribune to the Medford Mail Tribune, sports depart­ment. Being a product of the Medford School District, attending Medford Mid-High and then Medford Senior High School, BG fully immersed himself into Medford athletics as a team manager, trainer, statistician, team spokesperson and part time player agent! BG truly did it all. After graduating from Medford High in 1970, BG served one year at the University of Oregon as an assistant equipment manager. Soon after, with his family, BG owned and operated BG’s Locker room, an athletic apparel store in Medford for four years. BG also served proudly in the Oregon National Guard for six years.

BG has served as Program Director and President of the Medford Linebackers Organization in 2000 and 2001 respectfully. He currently serves as a vice president of the Linebackers, a group that supports Medford area sports for its athletic facility needs. BG has a true love of sports, but topping his list of loyalty, is his great love of his Linfield Wildcats, Dallas Cowboys and his Oregon State Beaver baseball squad. Baseball, without question, is where BG’s heart is.
