Alabama State University Establishes Athletic Hall of Fame

Alabama State University Establishes Athletic Hall of Fame
Posted By: Reggie Culpepper on June 07, 2021

Written by Travis Jarome; contributed by Kenneth Mullinax/ASU.

The Alabama State University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announces the establishment of an Athletics Hall of Fame.

The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to recognize and pay tribute to former student-athletes and coaches who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments during their enrollment or career at the University, as well as individuals who have demonstrated significant support to the advancement of the Department of Athletics through dedicated service. A Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be scheduled to take place during the 2022 football season, with a date and location to be determined.

Nominations for the Hall of Fame may be submitted by any Alabama State University affiliate (employee, Hornet Club member, Board of Trustees member, alumnus, inducted Hall of Fame member, and any Hall of Fame committee member). All nominations will begin being accepted June 7, 2021, and the nominations will close on August 30, 2021. Nomination forms will be available via BamaStateSports.com.



The nominations will be received by the Selection Committee during the nominating period and will be verified upon receipt.

Nominees may include a former student-athlete, coach, administrator, a team, or an individual who has made significant contributions to the department. Each person may nominate only one individual or team for consideration per cycle.

The Selection Committee has been assembled and consists of the following: ex-officio, director, presidential designee, a member of the Board of Trustees, a community member at large, member of the Athletic Strategic Communications office, current student-athlete, person who has achieved Hall of Fame status via Alabama State and/or SWAC, and a member of the current Student Government Association.

After the Hall of Fame selections have been confirmed, all honorees will be notified and announced as part of Homecoming Week festivities in October 2021.
