The Washington and Lee Athletic Hall of Fame was established in
1987 by the Alumni Board of Directors to honor and perpetuate the
memory of those individuals who have made outstanding contributions
to W&L athletics and who have helped bring recognition, honor,
distinction, and excellence to Washington and Lee University and
its intercollegiate athletic program.
Alumni are eligible only if they have participated in two full seasons of varsity intercollegiate competition at W&L and have been graduated ten or more years. Non-graduates may be selected only upon approval of all members of the Selection Committee, and not until ten years have passed since they would normally have received the bachelor degree. Alumni also are eligible if they have made outstanding contributions or offered extraordinary service to W&L athletics after graduation.
Coaches, trainers, managers, and any other persons who have made outstanding contributions or who have offered extraordinary service to athletics at W&L are eligible. Current University coaches or staff members may not be considered for selection. Those who are not alumni may be selected upon retirement or death, or following a period of five years after having left the W&L Athletic Department.
Nominations or other pertinent correspondence may be sent to: Athletic Hall of Fame Committee, Athletic Department, Washington and Lee University, 204 W. Washington St., Lexington, VA 24450-0303. Nominations can also be made via our online nomination form.
