Goodwell, Okla.—Three individuals and one team are set to be inducted into the 2014 class of the Aggie Hall of Fame; Paul Wilcox, Jr., Mike Lee, Joe Piccininni and the 1981 football team will be honored January 16, 2015 at the Hall of Fame Banquet & Induction Ceremony.

This year’s ceremony has been moved from September to January to allow those members coaching in the fall to be in attendance. It will mark the fourth class in the Aggie Hall of Fame which was created in 2011 to recognize the achievements and outstanding performance of athletes from all sports throughout OPSU history.

In an effort to broaden the selection process, the Hall of Fame committee has added an online nomination form to the Aggie Athletics website where fans and alumni can nominate former OPSU student-athletes they feel are worthy of Hall of Fame induction. The automated form can be found under the “Inside Athletics” header on the Hall of Fame page.

Individual biographies will be released on each of the 2014 inductees as the date of the ceremony approaches.
