“The Five Who Dared” were four Washington football players and one assistant coach who, amid the social turbulence of the 1960s, stepped up quietly and forcefully to use their voices and their platforms as student-athletes to protest racial injustice.

The 2021 class was recognized at this year’s homecoming game, Oct. 16 vs. UCLA, with official ceremonies on Oct. 17.
