|Vanderbilt Athletics Hall of Fame|
Vanderbilt Athletics is now accepting applications for the 2017 Hall of Fame class with the deadline to submit nominations set for June 11, 2017.
Fans and friends of the athletic program are invited to nominate their favorite all-time Commodores based on three sets of criteria.
A) Commodore Great - Letterwinners/Athletes who have brought recognition and prominence to the University and themselves by their athletic accomplishments as an undergraduate. (Criteria to be considered: All-American, All-SEC, and exceptional leadership as witnessed by teammates and/or coaches.) Nominees are not eligible until two (2) years after they last participated in intercollegiate athletics at the University.
B) Distinguished Letterwinners - Letterwinners/athletes who have made major contributions to the University athletic program through personal time, effort, interest and through many years of continued service and/or have distinguished themselves as exceptional in their chosen field of endeavor. Nominees are not eligible until six (6) years after they last participated in intercollegiate athletics at the University.
C) Life Time Achievement - Individuals, coaches, athletic officials, staff members and other University officials, who were not letterwinners/athletes at Vanderbilt University, yet have rendered outstanding service to the intercollegiate athletics program through personal time, effort, interest and through many years of continued service.
Once nominations close on June 11, the applications will be carefully reviewed and voted upon by the appointed Hall of Fame Committee.
All nominations need to include a thorough summary of why the person should be included in the Athletic Hall of Fame.
The 2017 Vanderbilt Athletics Hall of Fame induction banquet will take place on Friday, September 8. The honorees will then be recognized at the Vanderbilt vs. Alabama A&M football game the following day.
