OCAAA Hall of Fame
The purpose of the Oxnard College Athletic Alumni Hall of Fame is to recognize and honor those Oxnard College athletes, coaches, administrators and contributors who excelled in their respective sports or coaching/support roles and who helped to bring honor, recognition, distinction and excellence to Oxnard College by their conduct both on and off the field (or court) of competition. This recognition will foster a spirit of pride and sense of community as well as serve as a historical account of the athletic traditions of Oxnard College.
