In an effort to pay proper homage to the Texas Track & Field Hall of Famers, a website just for them is under construction at www.ttfcahalloffame.com. These are the men and women who have set the precedent for what we do today. These are the men and women who have paved the way for our successes. At some point, a Texas Track & Field Hall of Fame and Museum will also be open as a tangible site to visit and enjoy the history of this great sport in Texas. So don't throw away any memorabilia!! If you have anything you'd like to donate, contact us at email@example.com - we are now beginning the long road of collecting programs, jerseys, etc. related to the history of track & field in Texas. Thank you.
