An Evening with Coach Hammock at the
NCAA College Football Hall of Fame


Thursday, May 12

Join the NIU Alumni Association and 2021 MAC Football Coach of the Year, Thomas Hammock, '02, at the NCAA College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta on Thursday, May 12, from 5:30-9 p.m.

Engage with fellow Huskies and Coach Hammock while exploring the Hall of Fame. Guests will enjoy a "Big 10 Buffet" meal and two drink tickets with their $55 registration ($65 at the door). Kids' pricing for this event is available for $35 ($45 at the door). Suggested attire is Cardinal and Black business casual. All sales are final.


Founded in 1951 by the National Football Foundation, the College Football Hall of Fame immortalizes the greatest of the amateur gridiron. Over five million people have coached or played the game and less than 1,300 are inductees in the hall. This makes the College Football Hall of Fame an extremely selective group of individuals.

Explore the 95,000-square-foot, three-story space, including five themed galleries and over 50 interactive exhibits. These exhibits include a 47-yard football field and a three-story wall of over 750 college football helmets.

For more information or questions, please contact NIU Alumni Association Director of Events Dana King, '05, at or 815-753-5421.
