    The NC State Athletic Hall of Fame was created in 2012 and will now boast a total of 30 members.  The 2012 and 2013 galas received rave reviews for both the program and the receptions that precede and follow the induction.

    The third class of the NC State Athletic Hall of Fame includes the top student-athlete in the first half-century of NC State athletics, as well as multi-year All-Americans in six different sports, along with a former multi-sport coach, a long-time Wolfpack contributor and four other student-athletes.
