FACTS: The University of Arizona Sports Hall of Fame

The University of Arizona Sports Hall of Fame was established in 1976 with a charter membership of 18 individuals and two teams. After this year’s induction ceremony, membership will consist of more than 300 individuals and 40 teams.

Membership includes those who laid the foundation for Arizona’s athletic success; including Art Luppino, James “Pop” McKale, Mary Roby and Mo Udall, as well as those who have continued to push Arizona Athletics into the national spotlight, such as Sean Elliott, Tedy Bruschi, Lorena Ochoa and Chrissy Ahmann.

Former student-athletes become eligible for the University of Arizona Sports Hall of Fame induction 10 years after completing their athletics eligibility. Championship teams are eligible immediately following the exemplary season. In addition, professionals who participate on a team sport (i.e. NFL, NBA, WNBA, MLB, NPF) are eligible for nomination once they have completed their professional career.

Each year, the University of Arizona Sports Hall of Fame Selection Committee, composed of administrators, faculty, staff and alumni, reviews the accomplishments of hundreds of alumni student-athletes who have been privileged to wear the University’s cardinal red and navy blue. The Committee’s task is to identify those few who meet the qualifications for induction.

Selection is based upon the candidate meeting one or more of the following criteria: First-team All-American, NCAA champion, world record setter, Olympic medalist, NCAA statistical leader, professional athletic success, distinguished him/herself as a “pioneer” student-athlete or significant contributor to UA Athletics while at the University or after graduation. Nomination forms can be found at www.arizonawildcats.com under Traditions & Heritage.
