Vanderbilt will announce the 2009 inductees into its Athletic Hall of Fame, 2 p.m. Tuesday.

The induction ceremony will take place Sept. 4, the day before VU’s football team opens the 2009 season with a home game against Western Carolina, and the honorees will be recognized at halftime of that game.

Vanderbilt created its Athletic Hall of Fame last year and inducted 12 members, including basketball great Clyde Lee, legendary football coach Dan McGugin and longtime sportswriter Fred Russell.

Inductees are chosen based on one of three criteria: athletic greatness, contributions to the athletics department and/or lifetime achievement.
