The Troy University Sports Hall of Fame Board of Advisers have established eligibility requirements and are now seeking nominations for the inaugural Hall of Fame class, which will be inducted in the fall of 2012.

Nominations for the Troy University Sports Hall of Fame can be submitted by coaches, members of the Hall of Fame Board of Advisors and the general public.

In order to officially nominate an individual for inclusion in the Troy University Sports Hall of Fame, letters of nomination along with the nominees’ qualifications must be submitted by Oct. 15, 2011, to the Secretary of the Hall of Fame Board of Advisors at the Troy University Department of Athletics.

Nominees for the Troy University Sports Hall of Fame must fall into one of four categories – student-athlete, coach, administrator or vintage. All candidates for inclusion in the Troy University Sports Hall of Fame must have exhibited several characteristics, including – good moral and ethical character, outstanding leadership qualities, high quality citizenship, have demonstrated a level of achievement or service that stands out from the ordinary and have achieved honors and recognition that has been a credit to the nominee and to TROY.
