MSU-Northern has a tradition of excellence both in the classroom and on the playing
field, a tradition continued throughout its 74-year history. Since it’s inception

Hall of Fame.
The Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes players, managers and coaches who have made

Hall of Fame honorees are presented with a commemorative award in ceremonies on campus and are included in the Athletic Hall of Fame display in the Gymnasium.
