2019 Sports Hall of Fame Inductees

Green Terror Sports Hall of Fame

The Green Terror Sports Hall of Fame, sponsored by the McDaniel College Alumni Association, honors former athletes who have achieved prominence in their chosen fields and who also have made contributions to society.

Any coach, staff, administrator or manager nominated may be inducted in that role immediately after retirement in that capacity.
