2000 Hall of Fame Inductee
Terry Belden, Football, 1990-93
The three-time All-America and two-time All-Big Sky selection left NAU as one the most dominant kickers in the school's history. Belden still holds the NCAA record for field-goal average in a game (53.3 yards pk) which includes a school-record 60-yard boot. In addition to the 60-yarder, Belden also recorded two 54-yard field goals listing as the sixth longest kicks in the school's gridiron history. Belden booted an 81-yard punt against Northeastern marking the longest punt in J. Lawrence Walkup Skydome history and the second-longest in NAU history. Belden has also recorded the school's fifth (77 yards), sixth (76 yards) and seventh (75 yards) best punts in school history. He is listed third on the Jacks on all-time scoring list (199 points).
