The Bethel Athletic Department and the University take great pride in the BU Sports Hall of Fame. Each October during Homecoming week, the University honors individuals who have excelled as athletes, team members, coaches and staff, or contributors.
This year the Hall of Fame Breakfast is Saturday, October 22. It marks the 42nd class to be honored. Six teams and 104 individuals have been enshrined since 1980.
Bethel’s University’s Sports Hall of Fame is accepting nominations for the 2022 class. To qualify for the Hall of Fame, the following guidelines have been set:
Athletes, Coaches, and Administrators of Bethel or Alumni who have distinguished themselves in the field of athletics.
Outstanding in performance at BU or later in high school, college, or professional athletics.
Minimum of ten (10) years since graduation or last year of athletic participation at Bethel.
Distinguished Service- Individuals who have rendered special service to BU Athletics.
Nominations will be accepted until September 1, 2022, with the enshrinement to be set on Bethel’s Homecoming weekend.
Bethel Director of Athletics Brad Chappell commented, “Bethel Athletics is very proud of our current Hall of Fame membership and we want to make all of our fans and alumni aware of the process of nomination. We have several deserving candidates that simply need to be nominated to be included and that is where we depend on our fans and alumni to make us aware of who still needs to be added.
At this point we are looking at those that graduated in 2012 and prior who are eligible for nomination.”
