HALL OF FAME

FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME
National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame, Inc., The, (NFF&CHF), organization devoted to serving and promoting the interests of American amateur football, partly by honoring outstanding football players and coaches. It was chartered in 1947 as the National Football Shrine and Hall of Fame and reorganized in 1954 under the name of The National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame. Now known as the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame, it currently has 100 chapters with some 10,000 members. The foundation is administered by a board of directors drawn from leaders in business, education, and athletics who were associated with football in their college days. An executive committee, elected by and from the board of directors, directs the work of the foundation. The honors court, which has 12 members, annually chooses new members of the Football Hall of Fame from nominees named by the membership of the foundation and by other qualified observers. To be eligible, a football player must have been selected first team All America, an honorable designation conferred by college football coaches and sportswriters. These players become eligible ten years after their last year of intercollegiate football. A coach becomes eligible three years after completing his career.


Candidates are inducted into the Hall of Fame at an annual awards dinner, held in New York City. Also on this occasion, college-level athletes are honored for academic excellence, football performance, and campus leadership. The leading college football team is awarded the General Douglas MacArthur Bowl. A gold medal is presented annually to a prominent person for outstanding achievement; and from time to time a Distinguished American Award also is presented. NFF&CHF headquarters is in Morristown, New Jersey, and the college fooball hall of fame collection is located in South Bend, Indiana. The hall of fame hosts the enshrinement ceremony, which is held in August of each year.
