Georgia State Establishes Athletics Hall of Fame

ATLANTA — Georgia State has established an Athletics Hall of Fame to honor and recognize the accomplishments of the university’s great student-athletes, coaches, administrators and special contributors, the school announced today.

The inaugural class will be selected in early September and honored on the field at Georgia State’s Oct. 3 Homecoming football game against Liberty at the Georgia Dome.

The Hall of Fame Election Committee was appointed early in the spring with the task of creating guidelines for nomination and selection. This same group will be charged with selecting the inaugural class, however, fans can nominate deserving candidates which will be viewed by the committee.

The deadline for nomination for the inaugural class is Sept. 1, however, fans can nominate candidates at any point during the course of the year for consideration in the subsequent year.

During the first two years of existence, the Hall of Fame will allow up to 10 inductions per year. However, after the third year of existence, and thereafter, the number of inductees will be limited to five per year.

The Georgia State Athletics Hall of Fame will be housed within the GSU Sports Arena. More information on its placement will be forthcoming.
