Alumni/Athletics Hall of Fame Award

Entry into the Athletics Hall of Fame shall be based primarily on the athletic prowess of the individual. However, anyone who has made an outstanding contribution to Assumption athletics in any capacity, shall be eligible. Selection shall be made on the basis of playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, character and the athlete's contribution to the team or teams on which he/she played, and to Assumption College in general. Selection should not be based on one athletic event or any spectacular play. Selection should not be made on the basis of sentiment or popularity in order to protect the validity and exclusiveness of the Hall of Fame.  This award is presented in the fall at Homecoming/Family Weekend.
