Greatness is rare. It seems almost other-worldly. If we are lucky enough to see it, we know immediately we are witnessing something special. It wins championships. It sets records. And then breaks the ones it set.
The Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame is filled with 137 individuals who epitomize greatness. Some are household names, like Hank Aaron, Bart Starr, Vince Lombardi and Oscar Robertson. And they represent a wide range of sports - from baseball, football and basketball to auto racing, water skiing, bowling, cycling and speed skating. And they are all here to be honored by each of us for their extraordinary achievements in sport.
