PASADENA, CALIFORNIA, JANUARY 1, 2017



On January 1, 2017, Pasadena Football AKA "THE FRANCHISE" will never be the same.

To compliment our 10 Super Bowl Championships, A phenomenal induction into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame will take place with the induction of Ricky Ervins on New Year's Day in Pasadena, California.

Mr. Ervins will be the first native from Pasadena, California to be inducted into the best sporting venue in the world - The Rose Bowl.


A year ago PASHOF asked "When" and "Why' someone from Pasadena would be inducted and, most importantly, why it hasn't happened? We even dedicated a brick at the Rose Bowl in honor of all who played, cheered and supported The Franchise.

That day has come, finally...

From his days of playing pop warner football at Victory Park, to his days of domination in that infamous Blue and Gold uniform at John Muir High School (which embodies decades of talented teammates, coaches, supporters, cheerleaders.....and competitors) to his days at USC under the No. 34 and the ultimate achievement, a Super Bowl Ring, Mr. Ervin's contribution not just to the history of football at the Rose Bowl, but his legacy as a valued, honored member of The Franchise will be forever enshrined in Pasadena, California.

To every teammate of Mr. Ervins from Pasadena, we thank you.

To every cheerleader who cheered on Mr. Ervins and his teammates, we thank you.

To every Pasadena coach who, mentored, motivated and inspired Mr. Ervins, we thank you.

To every individual in the greatest city in the world who supported football in Pasadena, in big and small ways, we thank you.

To every member of The Franchise who came before Mr. Ervins, we thank you for laying the benchmark for excellence. This kid from Pasadena, like many, made it!

And most importantly, to Mr. Ervins....we thank you for your commitment and loyalty to the sport of football. Words cannot express the humbling joy we get in knowing that Pasadena, California, has called you home.

Go, Pasadena!

Honoring Legends to Benefit Pasadena's Youth

Established in 2001, the Pasadena Sports Hall of Fame, Inc. (AKA "PASHOF") is dedicated to preserving and honoring Pasadena's sports heritage. If you went around Pasadena looking through sock drawers and wall safes you could easily find Super Bowl rings, World Series Championship rings, NBA Championship rings, NCAA Titles and Championships, Olympic gold medals and World Cup trophies.


Every person in Pasadena knows somebody or knows somebody who knows somebody from here who has merited significant athletic achievement. People who have, even inadvertently, in large ways and small, contributed to the history of American sports. There are literally thousands who need to be considered i.e. players, coaches, jockeys, horses and sponsors. PASHOF also pays tribute to the countless residents, business owners, community leaders and educators who know it truly does take a village to raise a child... or a Super Bowl Champion or an Olympian, or two. Sports at every level of competition are a great part of Pasadena's history. A proud athletic legacy is not the only thing we have to recommend ourselves as a proud city, but is one of the finer things. PASHOF is not just about being a museum (although that's not an unreasonable or unforeseeable goal), rather, PASHOF honors it's legends via its Legend Award for the benefit of the youth of Pasadena. The Award, named in honor of individuals from Pasadena who have made significant strides in sports, and to supporters and organizers of youth oriented sports  programs in the City of Pasadena, provides 4 grants totaling $1,000.00 in honor of the Award recipients(s).


Since its inception, PASHOF has awarded over $5,000.00 in the form of scholarships and financial/equipment grants to high schools in the Pasadena Unified School District and organizations located in the City of Pasadena.


PASHOF has a volunteer research team that maintains statistics and lists of individuals eligible for induction. The list is updated in the Spring and the votes are tallied in April - May. The winners are notified and announced to the press. We do not pretend to know everyone who will ultimately be made eligible for honors. PASHOF needs your help and support to identify these people. They need to be considered, and we want to know their stories. Any Pasadena, California resident can nominate a Hall of Fame hopeful. To be considered, nominees must have gained significant recognition, locally or nationally, in athletic competition, or be an individual, business or organization who have demonstrated a significant history of support to youth oriented activities and sports in the City of Pasadena.
