Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013
A four-time All-American hurdler, an All-American high jumper, two legendary football players, one of the best men’s basketball players in school history and a contributor committed to Aggie Athletics comprise the latest class of Utah State University’s Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame, announced Tuesday [Feb. 12, 2013].
The dinner and induction ceremony for the Hall of Fame's 11th class is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 13, at the Riverwoods Conference Center in Logan.
The six inductees include Candy Cashell, USU's first female track All-American; Jim Laub, a life-long contributor of Aggie Athletics; Jimmy Moore, one of the best Aggie basketball players ever; Corey Murdock, one of just two track athletes in school history to earn All-American honors at least four times; Roy Shivers, an All-American running back; and Jim Turner, an outstanding quarterback and kicker.
“We are extremely proud of the wonderful collective achievements of this year’s class,” said Utah State Director of Athletics Scott Barnes. “This group joins 69 other outstanding individuals, along with three teams, to further ensure the proud tradition of Aggie Athletics.”
A total of 75 individuals and three teams have now been inducted into the Utah State Athletics Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame was founded in 1993 with 12 initial members, followed by eight members in 1994 and seven in 1995. The addition of any inductees was stopped until 2006 when five more individuals were added, followed by six recipients in 2007, five in 2008 to go along with the first-ever team inducted, seven in 2009, six in 2010, five in 2011 plus two more national championship teams, eight in 2012 and six inductees in 2013.
Located inside the Steve Mothersell Hall of Honor, the Utah State Athletics Hall of Fame gives fans the opportunity to view biographical information and watch videos on each of the inducted members. Both the Hall of Fame and the Hall of Honor are located inside the Jim and Carol Laub Athletics-Academics Complex in the north end of Romney Stadium.
The Hall of Fame Committee made its final selections for this year's class in January 2013. The inductees must fit into one of five categories: student-athlete, coach, team, athletics staff member, or contributor/special achievement. Contributor/special achievement includes individuals who have contributed to the ideal of sports at the University. Each nominee must receive at least 75 percent of the committee's vote to be eligible for induction.
Members of the committee are Scott Barnes, Jana Doggett, Gregg Gensel, Patty Halaufia, Craig Hislop, Dee Jones, Hal Labelle, Al Lewis, Carl Lundahl, Dale Mildenberger, Steve Noel and Doug Hoffman (chairman).
