Plymouth State Athletic Hall of Fame Criteria
On October 26, 1985 Joe Dudek broke Walter Payton's all-time college football touchdown scoring record at Plymouth State College's Currier Field. That evening, PSC held its first-ever Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Banquet. Five of PSC's most influential sports personalities were honored by a special committee with selection as charter members to the Hall of Fame. The inaugural banquet was a resounding success, and subsequently the yearly Hall of Fame banquet has become an annual highlight of the PSU sports schedule.
At each banquet, speakers recognize the contributions of each inductee, and those inductees present reflect on their Plymouth experiences. The banquet, entertainment and induction ceremonies make for a special event. Those who attend most value the opportunity to renew old acquaintances while honoring the memories and exploits of some special Plymouth people.
The Athletic Hall of Fame was established by PSU in 1985 to provide a means by which to recognize the efforts and achievements of various athletes, coaches, teams and contributors to Plymouth State University athletics while reinforcing a sense of history and tradition.
A selection committee will meet annually to consider nominations for induction into the Hall of Fame. This committee should consist of individuals from the University community with a knowledge of and interest in intercollegiate athletics, to include the University's Athletic Director, Associate Athletic Director/Senior Woman Administrator, Sports Information Director, an active male and female coach and a University faculty member. The selection committee will consist of a minimum of these four individuals, and always include at least one male and one female member.
