Nevada Athletics Hall of Fame

The University of Nevada Athletics Hall of Fame was established in 1973 to honor the school's most accomplished student-athletes, teams, coaches and staff.

Since its inception in 1973, a total of 182 individuals and four teams have been recognized for their outstanding achievements and contributions to Wolf Pack Athletics. Each year, individuals and/or teams are inducted into the Hall of Fame in an induction ceremony and recognized on the field at the Hall of Fame football game.

Plaques honoring each inductee are displayed on the lower level of Legacy Hall and are available for viewing during normal business hours.

Hall of Fame Criteria:

Student-athletes become eligible for induction 10 years after last competing at the university and should have earned All-America, all-region or all-conference honors or have set NCAA, conference or school records. Consideration is also given to individuals who exhibit a high level of professional and personal integrity and contribute to the ideals of their sport or sports.

Coaches become eligible five years after leaving the university and should have produced a career record above .500 and/or produced conference championship teams or teams that advanced to the NCAA competition.

Teams may also be inducted after last winning a championship 10 years ago. Only teams that won NCAA or regional championships will be considered.

Special consideration may also be given to honor and enshrine other staff members and supporters of the program who have made significant contributions by supporting, promoting or furthering athletics at the University of Nevada in a non-coaching or non-playing role.

Silver & Blue Service Award
