Hall of Fame

Started in 1995, the Hanover College Athletic Hall of Fame exists to recognize individuals who have served Hanover athletics with distinction, either by virtue of their performance as a coach or member of athletic teams or by meritorious efforts on behalf of athletics, either as an undergraduate or in years after leaving the institution.

Selections are made by a committee which represents current members of the athletic department, college staff and alumni. Nominations, which are accepted throughout the year, are judged on the person's athletic involvement while at Hanover, accomplishments after leaving the college (professional and/or community) and continuing interest in the college, service to the college and involvement in college activities.

The hall of fame, which resides in the Horner Health and Recreation Center, currently honors more than 100 individuals who have left their mark on Hanover athletics.

Register for Hall of Fame Game Day.
