Nutt, president of Lincoln College from 1982 to 2002; and the late Dominic "Doc" Guzzardo and his son John, longtime friends and supporters of Lincoln College athletics.

In naming the large inaugural class, the Hall of Fame committee made a special effort to select individuals whose accomplishments and involvement represent as much of Lincoln College's athletic history as possible.

The Lincoln College Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes student athletes, teams, coaches, managers, administrators, faculty, staff and friends who have distinguished themselves in the field of athletics at Lincoln College, either by their performance on an athletic team or by meritorious efforts in supporting the athletic program at the college.
