HOW MANY ARE INDUCTED EACH YEAR?

WHY WASN'T YOUR NOMINATION CHOSEN FOR INDUCTION?
With many thousands of athletes and hundreds of coaches and teams to consider, from more than a century of Green Wave sports, the standards are very high for our inductees. The AHOF board of directors makes every effort to choose the very best of the best for induction, while respectfully recognizing the Green Wave careers and achievements of so many others who have made their mark in NMHS sports.
