The Snow College Athletic Department and Alumni Association are proud to introduce
a celebration of the rich athletic legacies of former student-athletes who have helped
bring recognition, honor, distinction, and excellence to Snow College. The Snow College
Athletic Hall of Fame is established to honor, pay tribute to, and perpetuate the
legacy of former athletes, coaches, teams, and supporters who, either through participation,
devotion and/or interest, have made outstanding contributions to intercollegiate athletics.
Nearly a century of Badger athletic history has been reviewed by a committee of faculty, staff, alumni, and community members. They have reviewed the accomplishments of hundreds of athletes who have proudly worn Snow College uniforms. The committee’s vital task was to identify deserving athletes who will be recognized in the inaugural group of the Snow College Athletic Hall of Fame. The first induction class recognizes 19 individuals and one team, representing excellence from nine sports and every decade of Badger athletics.
