Frank Denius Family University of Texas Athletics Hall of Fame
The Frank Denius Family University of Texas Athletics Hall of Fame is the University of Texas at Austin’s (UT) first-ever sports Hall of Fame. Housed in the 24,713-sf Red McCombs Red Zone in the north end zone of Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, the project included the conversion of concessions space into one central location for visual and digital displays highlighting UT’s athletic and academic achievements.
The facility tells the story of Texas Athletics from the vintage days of its first football team in 1893 to what is now one of the nation’s premier broad-based athletic programs. Visual and digital displays honor all 55 of UT’s National Championship teams, 599 conference team titles, hundreds of individual National Champions, 171 Olympians at 21 Olympiads who claimed 145 Olympic medals, first-team sports All-Americans, Academic All-Americans, and other scholastic honorees, as well as the traditions and tales that encompass the history of Texas Athletics. All totaled, the facility is decorated with 392 trophies representing generations of successful UT teams, student-athletes, and coaches.
