The Florida Tech Sports Hall of Fame was established in 1986 to honor those who have made outstanding contributions to Florida Tech Athletics. Its purpose is to remember those who have brought distinction, honor and excellence to the University’s athletics program. Since it was organized, 37 individuals and four teams have been enshrined.

High Standards

Jeanne Flanagan was the Sports Hall of Fame’s first inductee. Flanagan, a former Olympian, has set a high standard for all honorees that have followed her footsteps into the Hall. A member of Team USA’s varsity eight, she helped her country capture its first goal medal in the event at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, Calif.

Athletes, coaches, trainers, or any other persons who have made outstanding contributions to athletics at Florida Tech are eligible for nomination. An athlete can be nominated five years after receiving his or her undergraduate degree. A person who has not qualified for a degree can be nominated only upon approval of the selection committee. This process cannot occur until five years has elapsed since he or she normally would have received a degree.

Coaches, trainers or those who have made outstanding contributions to Florida Tech Athletics may not be considered while they are holding the position for which they are being nominated.

The Florida Tech Sports Hall of Fame is located along the entrance, inside the Clemente Center.
