ABOUT THE HALL OF FAME
More than a century of athletic heritage is the focal point behind the recognition of some of the University of Oregon's greatest athletic immortals of all time with the founding of Oregon's Athletic Hall of Fame in 1992.
Spearheaded by former director of athletics Bill Byrne, the formation of the Hall was established to permanently honor athletes, coaches and administrators who have been a part of the University's rich athletic heritage over the course of decades. The select few who are elected for induction represents the very best the University of Oregon has to offer and who have brought honor to themselves and teammates. Each spring the selection committee reviews the candidates, with all nominees' eligibility for induction commencing 10 years following their departure from the University.
Plaques honoring each of the inductees and their achievements are permanently displayed as part of the University's Hall of Champions, located on the second floor of the Len Casanova Athletic Center.
The athletic showcase is open to the public free of charge weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Twenty-seven individuals and three teams were included among the Hall of Fame's inaugural class of inductees in 1992.
