To celebrate the rich history of athletics excellence at Tufts spanning more than 150 years, Tufts Athletics established a Hall of Fame, which inducted its inaugural class on April 21, 2018.
The Tufts Athletics Hall of Fame honors the men and women who, through athletics participation, coaching, or service, have distinguished themselves in the field of intercollegiate athletics, brought honor and acclaim to Tufts, and contributed to the success and advancement of intercollegiate athletics at the university.
“Our new Hall of Fame provides an exciting opportunity to honor outstanding Jumbo student-athletes, coaches, and staff who have made significant contributions to our proud and rich tradition of athletics excellence here at Tufts,” said John Morris, director of athletics. “We look forward to welcoming our alumni and friends back to campus this spring to celebrate our history and induct our first class of Hall of Fame honorees.”
Nominations for the Tufts Athletics Hall of Fame are accepted in four categories: student-athletes, coaches, teams, and athletics department staff. An 11-member selection committee, consisting of alumni, coaches, and staff, chooses the class each year.
