Montana Tech Athletics and the Digger Athletic Association are seeking nominations for the 2020 Hall of Fame induction class.
Individuals can be nominated as student-athletes, coaches, teams, contributors or as a legacy. The nomination deadline is April 1.
To be eligible as a student-athlete, the nominee must have completed a minimum of two years and completed their athletic career at Montana Tech or Montana School of Mines. The individual must be out of school at least ten years and had a distinguished athletic career at Tech or following their attendance at the university. Academic standards are also considered but are not required criteria. First team All-Americans are automatically entered into the Hall of Fame.
Teams and coaches have separate criteria than individuals. A team may be nominated for induction based on extraordinary accomplishments such as a Conference Championship or post-season performances. National Championship teams are automatic selections after the mandatory ten year waiting period.
To be eligible as a coach, the individual can no longer be coaching, won a conference championship and made a positive impact toward achieving excellence in the classroom and on student-athletes.
Contributors are eligible if they made a significant positive impact on the Athletic Department as a student-athlete, coach, administrator or volunteer. The individual can no longer be employed at Montana Tech.
To be eligible as a Legacy, the individual must be removed from playing or coaching at Montana Tech by a minimum of 40 years.
