This paper consists of reflections by a group of higher education peers on Don Hellison’s impact and legacy. The group of peers reflects a mix of gender, history and (work) experience with Hellison, and philosophical positions. Their views are presented around thematic topics, based on written responses to select questions. Some of the themes include Hellison’s impact on school physical education, physical education teacher education, his atypical role and identity as a researcher and scholar, and him being ahead of his time. The consensus view across Hellison’s peers is Hellison having impacted K–12 physical education, physical education teacher education, and the sport pedagogy research enterprise in significant ways that will be long lasting.
