Nominees will soon be inducted into the William Paterson Alumni Athletic Hall of Fame.
Since its beginning 39 years ago, 144 athletes have been honored as WPU Hall of Famers.
Former Pioneer athletes are honored alongside coaches, staff, and others who have made a significant impact on the university athletic program.
Rules state that alumni inductees must be at least five years removed from athletic competition to be eligible.
The 2017 honorees will be announced this summer.
