Troy University establishes sports hall of fame

Troy University will now officially have a way to honor the many men and women who have contributed to the school's success in more than 100 years of athletics

"The Troy University Sports Hall of Fame will shine the spotlight on deserving Trojan warriors, but it will also serve as a place to preserve our great traditions," Troy University Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins Jr., said.

The hall will be housed in the new Trojan Arena, which is currently under construction.

The first class for the Troy University Sports Hall of Fame will include up to 10 inductees, with each successive year set to add up to eight new inductees. At least two inductees in each class through the year 2020 must come from the vintage or "Old-Timers" category.
