NAU Athletics Hall of Fame

The Northern Arizona University Athletics Hall of Fame was established in 1981 to honor those persons who have made outstanding contributions to NAU athletics.

Its purpose is to perpetuate the memory of those persons who have brought distinction, honor and excellence to Northern Arizona University while contributing to the welfare of their community, their profession or the university. Additionally, outstanding teams whose records of achievement have brought honor to the university and its programs shall be so honored by induction into the Athletics Hall of Fame.

Student-athletes, athletic teams and coaches become eligible for Hall of Fame induction five years after competing or serving at Northern Arizona University.

A current employee of the university who has 20 years of service at NAU and has made a valued and sustained contribution to the success of a specific or overall athletics program is eligible for Hall of Fame induction.

To nominate a former student-athlete or coach, please submit a Hall of Fame nomination form to Denise Thompson at or mail to NAU Athletics Hall of Fame, c/o Denise Thompson, 1 Skydome Drive, Flagstaff, AZ 86011.
