About the SAISD Athletic Hall of Fame
Established in 2014, the SAISD Athletic Hall of Fame honors alumni who have made a positive impact in sports, either through excellent athletic achievements or excellent athletic program contributions. In addition to outstanding athleticism, inductees were chosen for their distinction and excellence to the District by their conduct both on and off the field, or court, of competition.

Each year, nominations are received and selection is made by the SAISD Athletic Hall of Fame committee. Bronze plaques commemorating the honorees are on permanent display at the east visitor’s entrance of Alamo Stadium.

The SAISD Athletic Hall of Fame is sponsored by the SAISD Athletic Department and receives support from the SAISD Foundation. For ticket information, call 210-554-2655 or visit the SAISD Athletic Hall of Fame website at
