Arizona State Sports Hall of Fame
|Hall of Fame Information|
The Hall of Distinction, recognizing outstanding contributions from coaches and administrators, was inaugurated in 1982.
Plaques describing the athletic achievements of each inductee are displayed on the concourse level of the University Activity Center in four separate exhibit areas. It is open for public viewing during normal University hours and during all Activity Center events.
Athletes enshrined in the Hall of Fame are chosen by the Hall of Fame selection committee, composed of administrators, staff faculty, and lay people close to the University's athletic program.
Sports Hall of Fame selection is based on one or more of the following criteria: all-America recognition; NCAA champion; world record setter; Olympic medal; NCAA statistical leader; and significant contribution to sports and graduation.
Athletes become eligible for enshrinement 10 years after their senior class has graduated.
It has been said by many respected individuals in the world of sports that the Sports Hall of Fame at ASU is one of the best, if not THE best, in the nation in terms of the number of sports represented and the quality of athletes in the hall.
