The purpose of The Edgar F. White ’38 Athletic Hall of Fame is to recognize a team, player, coach, administrator, or friend of NYA whose participation in NYA athletics has been exceedingly impressive, while bringing distinction and pride to the Academy. The Edgar F. White ’38 Hall of Fame also serves to connect alumni athletes from years past to current student-athletes.
Individual athletes must have graduated at least 10 years ago, and coaches must have had a career at NYA spanning at least five years. Administrators and fans have no time requirement. Nominees, living and deceased, will be considered based on their athletic achievement and demonstration of sportsmanship, character, teamwork, and integrity throughout their careers.
