Dave Kellogg Of Air Force Athletics To Be Inducted Into Sports Information Hall of Fame
May 19, 2010
USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - Dave Kellogg, the coordinator of the Air Force Academy Hall of Fame and emeritus SID, is one of seven sports communications professionals who will be inducted into the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Hall of Fame at the organization's national convention in San Francisco, which takes place July 4-7, 2010.
Kellogg has served the sports information profession with distinction at two universities. Always ahead of his time, he began his career at the University of Idaho in 1977-85, where he computerized the operation of the office to include word processing, desktop publishing and statistics; something other communications offices didn't even think about doing for another decade.
He moved to the Air Force Academy in 1985, and served as the sports information director for the 27-sport program until 2001. As a member of the senior staff, Kellogg was responsible for all media relations, crisis communications, community relations, internal communications and branding. He computerized the office to include desktop publishing, converted from traditional photography to digital, and headed one of the first sports information departments to embrace the World Wide Web.
Kellogg was an active member of CoSIDA, often presenting the latest in technological applications for sports information at the annual workshop. He also served several years as chair of the District VII CoSIDA Committee on Committees.
Among the many events in which he has served as media coordinator include the World University Games, Sheffield, England 1991; 1998 O'ahu Bowl, 1997 Las Vegas Bowl, 1995 Tucson Copper Bowl, 1989, '90, '91, '92 Liberty Bowl, 1987 Freedom Bowl, 1985 Bluebonnet Bowl. He has also worked as the director or press aid for numerous NCAA regional basketball championships and conference championships.
He is a past member of the College Football, Baseball and Basketball Writers Associations, a past president and secretary of the Big Sky Conference Sports Information Directors Association and past president of the Western Athletic Conference Sports Information Directors Association.
The class of 2010 includes Roger Crosley of Emerson College, former CoSIDA president Max Corbet of Boise State University, John Eggers (Oregon State), Dave Kellogg (Air Force Academy), Larry Happel from Central College, Carol Hudson, long-time SID at Old Dominion, and CoSIDA's Director of External Affairs Barb Kowal. Kellogg and Eggers were selected by the Veterans Selection Committee; the other five were selected by a vote of the current CoSIDA Hall of Famers.
This year, the CoSIDA Hall of Fame class and the Academic All-America® Hall of Fame class will be recognized together in an evening banquet, taking place Tuesday, July 6 (6-8 p.m.) at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis, site of the CoSIDA annual workshop.
