2013 NAVY MEN’S LACROSSE Bilderback-Moore Navy Lacrosse Hall of Fame Hall of Players and Coaches
• This section primarily highlights Navy lacrosse today and includes a benched area to sit and watch a short film about the rise of Navy’s lacrosse program under the direction of head coach Richie Meade - a visually stimulating story about what it means to put a Navy lacrosse uniform on and represent the nation. • As in the Hall of Champions and Heroes, a kiosk is available in this section that is dedicated to the current year’s team, featuring a roster, player statistics and the team photo. • Navy’s success within the Patriot League is showcased, along with all four of the tournament trophies it has won since joining the conference in 2004. • Memorabilia from Navy’s coaches of yesterday and today are featured, including Dinty Moore’s bathrobe decked out in stars representing wins over Army, Willis Bilderback’s jacket he wore on the sidelines and Dick Szlasa’s Morris Touchstone Memorial Award as the nation’s coach of the year in 1975. • The bronze sculpture of Dinty Moore is also housed in this section of the hall of fame. • More than 40 different Navy lacrosse players have been recipients of Naval Academy Awards, including the Naval Academy Athletic Association’s Sword for Men, the Thompson Trophy Cup and the Calvert Award. Their names are ensconced within the walls of the Hall of Players and Coaches. • This is also the area in which Special Coaches and Friends of Navy Lacrosse are honored. Each year, a member of the Navy lacrosse family will be added to the list of winners for their contributions to the Navy lacrosse program.

The Bilderback-Moore Navy Lacrosse Hall of Fame
The Bilderback-Moore Navy Lacrosse Hall of Fame was made possible by a collaboration of former Navy lacrosse players, coaches and friends of the program whose private donations to the U.S. Naval Academy Foundation helped fund the project. Gallagher & Associates spearheaded the overall design and project management of the Bilderback-Moore Navy Lacrosse Hall of Fame, while 1220 headed up the fabrication, RMJ was responsible for the construction and GToo Media developed the interactive media and kiosks. Greg Murphy, a 1970 All-American who won the Schmeisser Cup the same year, served as the leader of the design committee.
