Hall Of FAME

​Being inducted into the UNI Rugby Hall of Fame is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon any person associated with the program — alumni, coach, supportive member of the college administration, etc.  In exceptional circumstances, whole teams may be elevated to the Hall of Fame.  Induction into the Hall of Fame serves to recognize the best of the best and give current players and coaches a blueprint for success—something for which to strive.  It also serves as a medium through which to pass on the program’s storied history and tradition.

Any coach or alumnus may nominate an individual who played for and/or coached the UNI Rugby Program for induction into the Hall of Fame.  There is no mandatory period a candidate must be removed from playing for the program before being considered for induction.  Nominations must be sent via email to: Deandre Moore at Deandremoore99@yahoo.com

The nomination must include:

  • The nominator’s name, college, years played, and relation to the nominee
  • The nominee’s name, college attended, positioned played, and years played/coached for the program
  • How the nominee has contributed to the program and generally why he should be inducted into the Hall of Fame.  Relevant information includes, but is not limited to:
  • Individual playing and/or coaching success;
  • Impact on team leadership, culture, relationship with the colleges, alumni engagement, etc.; and
  • Exceptional support of the program as an alumni or supporter
