About the Athletic Hall of Fame
"Hail to thee, dear Notre Dame......
The Athletic Hall of Fame exemplifies the rich tradition of Notre Dame athletics . The celebratory Awards Dinner and Induction Ceremony honor individual athletes, legendary coaches, special contributors, and outstanding teams who have made us proud through the years while displaying their dedication, spirit, and athletic talents on the courts and fields.
When the doors opened at Notre Dame in 1957, Msgr. William Capik served as the school's first Athletic Moderator and William "Doc" Creamer the school's first Athletic Director. Soon to follow were Vince Ardery, Barb Major, John Simone and Richard Roche to continue to build the strong tradition of excellence with successful programs, which helped shape the lives of our student-athletes.
We welcome you to be a part of this tradition. Take the trip down memory lane with our athletes as we honor those who wore the blue and white. The Hall of Fame's list of great athletic talents is long and continues to grow. Each celebration promises to be an exciting athletic reunion for past Notre Dame athletes and faculty alike.
.....for the glory of Notre Dame!"
