Policy Governing the Commemoration of Athletic Jerseys

Criteria

The following list of criteria is not meant to be all inclusive, although items A and B shall be considered as basic requirements for all candidates. Additional criteria could be considered if they seem substantive and appropriate. It is not expected that a nominee will have met every one of the criteria listed. It is expected, however, that any limitations in one area shall be counter-balanced by superiority in other areas.

The criteria to be considered are as follows:

  1. Be named to a nationally recognized All-America Team, such as Associated Press, Walter Camp, American Football Coaches Association, Football Writers Association of America, etc.
  2. Be named a Conference "Player of the Year".
  3. Be named All-Conference for at least two years during undergraduate career.
  4. Bring positive recognition and prominence to the University and themselves through their accomplishment.
  5. Be a statistical leader in a recognized category as maintained by the Conference in that sport.
  6. Be a statistical leader in a recognized category as maintained by the University in that sport.

The honor shall be the retirement of the student-athlete's jersey not his/her number. A coach may choose not to reissue a given number, but the retirement of the student-athlete's jersey would not in and of itself require that the number never be worn again.

It is anticipated that at the retirement of the student-athlete's jersey, a ceremony shall be held along with an appropriate display with some sign of identification.
