Induction in the University of South Florida Athletic Hall of Fame is the highest honor afforded by the USF Athletics Department.[1]

The Hall of Fame is located within the Lee Roy Selmon Athletic Center on USF's Tampa campus.

History

The Lee Roy Selmon Athletics Center, which is home to the USF Athletic Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame was established by Director of Athletics Doug Woolard in 2009 with the first 16 inductees. 12 of the inaugural inductees were members or coaches of the 1985 USF Women's Swimming team, which won the first and only NCAA national championship in USF history. Mark Harlan took over as Athletic Director in 2014, and no new members were inducted during his tenure. Michael Kelly brought the Hall of Fame back in 2019 after he became USF's new AD.

Selection process

Nominations

Nominations are accepted from both the Hall of Fame voting committee and the general public. Individuals must be at least four years removed from their USF career to be nominated. Nominees are eligible for induction for up to three years after being nominated. If not selected in that period of time, they must be re-nominated for further consideration.[2]

Induction

Every year the three nominees with the most votes from the Hall of Fame committee, provided that they receive votes from at least five of the nine members of the committee, will be inducted into the USF Athletic Hall of Fame. Prior to 2019, any nominee that received six or more votes from the nine member committee was inducted, regardless of how many nominees passed that threshold. The annual induction ceremony takes place at USF's Homecoming football game.[2]

Voting committee

The USF Hall of Fame voting committee consists of nine members: a past Hall of Fame inductee, two USF Varsity Club Board members, the Faculty Athletics Representative, a Senior Woman Administrator, a USF Alumni Association representative, a former USF Athletics coach or staff member, a distinguished community member and the Director of Athletics. All members of the committee serve a term of two years with the exception of the Athletic Director who serves on the committee for their entire tenure as AD and appoints the other members of the committee.[2]

Inductees

As of 2020, the Hall features 40 members: 33 players, 6 coaches, and 2 athletic directors with one member inducted as both a player and a coach.
