Established by the National Alumni Association in 1971, the Athletic Hall of Fame annually recognizes former Mount student athletes who “have exhibited athletic prowess of an outstanding nature in an intercollegiate sport.”

Over the years, alumni and coaches from such sports as basketball, baseball, cross country, soccer, track, tennis, lacrosse, decathlon, field hockey, softball, golf and football have been honored.  Since 1971, 150 student athletes, eight coaches, four teams and three supporters of Mount athletic programs have been inducted. 

The late Monsignor John L. Sheridan, former president of the Mount, had the distinction of being the first athlete elected to membership into the Hall of Fame. A versatile athlete, Monsignor Sheridan was captain of the Mount basketball team and an all-Maryland football player. He graduated from the College in 1917 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1921.

Also among the men, women and teams honored are former Mount basketball coach Jim Phelan and current track and field coach Jim Deegan, which is only fitting as the two have combined to coach over one-third of the other inductees.
