Welcome from the President!

I am extremely honored and proud to have the opportunity to serve as President of the USC Association of Lettermen for 2021. The University of South Carolina provided me with an athletic platform which set forth behaviors utilized today in my career to help generate success.

All of us came to the University of South Carolina with different goals and agendas; however, we completed our collegiate years as Lettermen with lifelong memories and friendships. Our motto “Athletes Helping Athletes” is more relevant today than ever before. Like any team we played on, the strength of the Association of Lettermen depends on the support and engagement from all Lettermen. I ask each of you to stay connected to the University and each other, to support our current student-athletes, and to be involved. Each member of the Association is part of our family, and we will always be here to support you. Gamecocks 4 Life!

South Carolina Athletics Hall of Fame

The University of South Carolina Athletics Hall of Fame was established in 1967. Since that time, 193 individuals have been inducted. The Hall of Fame includes former standout athletes, coaches, administrators, announcers, trainers and others associated with the university’s athletics department who have greatly contributed their time and efforts to make our athletics better.

The inaugural class in 1967 included: Earl Clary, Sam Daniel, Steve Wadiak, Freddie Thompkins and Alfred H. “Fritz” Von Kolnitz

Minimum requirements to be nominated for the Hall of Fame (for former athletes) include at least one of the following:

-Conference Player of the Year
-National Player of the Year
-First or Second Team All-American
-First Team All-Conference
-First Team All South Independent (when the university was not in conference)
-Team MVP
-School Record Holder

For those who have contributed greatly to the success of our athletic department off the field of play: those individuals will be considered by the Hall of Fame Committee on an individual basis. Our Hall of Fame Committee consists of nine (9) members, all of whom have earned a letter at the university, or have achieved Hall of Fame recognition in the past. The nine members are a cross section of sports, race and sex, and serve on a rotating basis.

To nominate an individual for the Hall of Fame, please give a written bio, including all honors achieved, to a member of the athletic department, the Lettermen’s Association, or to Tommy Moody, Committee Chairman since 1998.
