Steve Ward, DVC Athletic Hall of Fame Founder and Chairperson

Diablo Valley College Athletic Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame was founded in 2005 by Steve Ward, Athletic Director at the time, and got off the ground mainly because of a generous-$5,000 donation by Russ and Carolyn Anderson of Lehmer's Pontiac/GMAC of Concord. Since that time, numerous individuals and businesses have given generously, which has made this an annual February event. The entire Hall of Fame Executive Committee would like to thank all who have donated in the past which in turn enables us all to honor and remember the rich tradition of intercollegiate athletics at Diablo Valley College (formerly East Contra Costa College). Four display cases in the Physical Education Building are solely designed to the Hall of Fame and many artifacts are on display year-round.

The most recent Hall of Fame ceremony was February 2016.

For tickets contact Steve Ward at 925-969-2762 or sward@dvc.edu.

Jim Costa, on the Athletic Hall of Fame Executive Committee, has been inducted into Hall of Fame.
