Eligibility

To be eligible for the LSU Athletic Hall of Fame in the Athlete category, the individual must have been granted an earned baccalaureate, professional or graduate degree by LSU or by some other regionally accredited institution of higher learning, have earned one or more letters in a varsity sport at LSU, have gained national distinction through superlative performance as an athlete, and have established a personal reputation for character and citizenship which reflects favorably on the University.

Former LSU athletes are eligible for nomination only after three years or more have elapsed since the conferring of his or her degree.

To be eligible in the Coach/Administrator category, the individual must have made significant contributions to LSU Athletics in a capacity other than an athlete, have gained national distinction through exceptional accomplishments in his or her field of expertise and have established a personal reputation for character and citizenship which reflect favorably on the University.

Former LSU coaches and administrators are eligible for nomination only after five years or more have elapsed since retiring from the profession for which the individual is nominated.

Nominations

Nomination forms can be attained by calling the office of the LSU Director of Athletics at (225) 578-3600, or may be downloaded at www.LSUsports.net/nominations. Each nomination form must be accompanied by a professional resume’ of the nominated individual and two letters of recommendation.

Retired Numbers/Jerseys

To have a jersey retired at LSU, an athlete must have completed intercollegiate competition for LSU a minimum of five years prior to nomination. Athletes must have demonstrated truly unusual and outstanding accomplishments, exceeding and in addition to all criteria used for Hall of Fame selection. The athletic performance must be considered unique, such as winning of a Heisman Trophy or National Player of the Year award, and should be based on the total LSU career. Athletes may also be considered for making dramatic impact on the popularity of his or her sport or for significant participation in positive change in LSU Athletics. Nominees must have a unanimous vote of support from the Hall of Fame committee.

Under a provision of the LSU jersey retirement bylaws established Jan. 1, 2007, the retirement of an athlete’s jersey in a particular sport does not preclude a current student-athlete in that sport from wearing the jersey number in that or any other sport, subject to the discretion of the head coach. This provision applies only to jerseys retired after January 1, 2007. The numbers worn by Maravich, Pettit, O’Neal, Cannon and Bertman may never again be worn by future student-athletes in their respective sports.
