He is a member of several Hall of Fames. including the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association (GACA) and the Georgia Dugout Club. He was involved with Team USA and promoted our game internationally. 
 
The Harvey Cochran Scholarship Committee has established the following criteria for the selection of the scholarship recipients. The individual recommended by his Head Coach must be a member of a high school baseball team that is a member in good standing financially with the Georgia Dugout Club.  The individual should not be a potential draft choice.
