Honoring exceptional achievement

The BW Athletics Alumni Association Hall of Fame was created in 1965 to recognize exceptional achievements and impact on the Brown & Gold by an athlete, administrator or coach, team or honorary. The newest inductees bring the total number of Yellow Jacket athletes in the Hall to 360.

The Hall of Fame Selection Committee considers nominations in four categories (Athlete, Coach/Administrator, Team or Honorary), based upon accomplishments during the nominee's time at BW, or in some circumstances, significant recognition for athletics achievement outside of BW.

Nominations are accepted on a rolling basis, and selection is determined each spring.
