The Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame is a non-profit organization committed to recognizing the outstanding achievements by Southern Nevada athletes, both in the world of sports and the local community.
In 2022, the Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame opens a new permanent home at The Dollar Loan Center.
“Southern Nevada has a rich sporting history and we are honored to build a permanent home for the Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame at The Dollar Loan Center that will help recognize and showcase the incredible accomplishments of our local athletes,” said Vegas Golden Knights Chairman and CEO Bill Foley.
The SNSHF Class of 2022 is a diverse group of individuals, including Larry Brown, Shawn Davis, Glen Gondrezick, Ryan Ludwick, DeMarco Murray and Amy Purdy. Including this induction class, the Hall of Fame now consists of 116 members.
First launched in 1997 to honor its first inductee – David Humm – the SNSHF Induction Ceremony and Golf Tournament has become one of Las Vegas’ most anticipated events each year. Of the 116 current members, the SNSHF has enshrined two events (National Finals Rodeo and Las Vegas Bowl), two organizations (Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and Las Vegas Founders), four families (Cashman, Boyd, Fertitta and Herbst), seven teams (1976-77 UNLV Basketball, 1989-90 UNLV Basketball, 1983 Las Vegas Stars, 1944 Las Vegas High School Football, 1997-98 UNLV Golf, Las Vegas Thunder and the inaugural 2017-18 Vegas Golden Knights) and 101 accomplished individuals.
Proceeds from the annual induction ceremony and capital campaign are donated to organizations committed to the support and enhancement of Southern Nevada youth through active participation in programs designed to promote leadership, values and character through sports.
