The Hula Bowl Hall of Fame was established in 2019 to recognize the greatest collegiate players and coaches who participated in the Hula Bowl All-Star Game. The Joe Roth Award was established in 2020 to honor Roth’s legacy and his passion for faith, humility and courage. Diagnosed with melanoma before his senior year, Roth sat out the entire 1976 season, including the Hula Bowl, battling the disease privately. He died in February 1977 a few weeks after playing in the Hula Bowl. His number 12 is the only number retired by the California football program.
