Fifty years ago, the members of the TCU Lettermen’s Association created a Hall of Fame as a way to recognize TCU’s best athletes.

Anyone who has lettered in a sport at TCU can join the association 10 years after earning his or her letter. Active members can then nominate TCU athletes who lettered for at least one year to be in the Hall of Fame. A committee of 45 members comprised of lettermen, coaches and athletic staff then votes on who makes that year’s class.

This year, the committee chose six athletes for the 50th Hall of Fame class.
