Hall of Honor Exhibit

The Hall of Honor exhibit recognizes all of the great sports legends who have been inducted into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame throughout its illustrious 53-year history. These individuals are listed by the year of their enshrinement, and includes former athletes, coaches, contributors, and members of the media. Within the Hall of Honor, you will also find the New Class display showcasing memorabilia of the most recent class of inductees. This display will remain for one year until the next class is inducted in April of each year.
