Hall of Fame
Founded in 1978, the Texas A&M University-Commerce Athletic Hall of Fame is one of the most visible functions of the A&M-Commerce Athletic Association. The Association's Hall of Fame Selection Committee meets annually to select "those persons - living or dead - whose contributions to Texas A&M University-Commerce have brought lasting fame and honor to themselves and A&M-Commerce." Induction classes must be approved by the A&M-Commerce President and Texas A&M University System Board of Regents.
Membership in the Athletic Hall of Fame is limited to former Lion student-athletes, coaches and athletic administrators. Student-athletes must have completed their eligibility 10 years prior to nomination while coaches and administrators must have served A&M-Commerce for a minimum of 10 years. In addition, the nominee must be a person of such integrity, character and sportsmanship that the A&M-Commerce family will be inspired by the recognition. There are 145 former student-athletes, coaches and administrators, along with 12 teams currently enshrined.
