Eight Added to UCLA Hall of Fame

The UCLA Hall of Fame continues to grow and it's not a matter of needing to make up numbers. At UCLA it's not hard to find deserving people to be inducted and once again they have found a new crop of sensational Bruins. Eight people will be inducted into the UCLA Hall of Fame for 2011-2012. They will be inducted at a ceremony on November 4, then on November 5 they will be presented to the crowd at the Arizona St. football game against Arizona St. as newly-inducted members. Here are the eight:

  • Gary Adams, baseball
  • Ato Boldon, track and field
  • Theotis Brown, football
  • Ernie Case, football
  • Larry Nagler, tennis
  • Mel North, fencing
  • Alex Rousseau, water polo
  • Janeene Vickers-McKinney, track and field

With the induction of these eight athletes, the number of inductees in the UCLA Hall of Fame now reaches 247. Boldon is the highlight of the group, winning a NCAA individual title with the Bruins before winning five Olympic medals for Trinidad and Tobago and a World Championships gold medal. Theotis Brown was an all-time great at UCLA, leaving Westwood as the school's single-season leader in total yards and he even sent his son, Trey, to play for the Bruins. Larry Nagler remains the only Bruin to win three Pac-10 singles titles, while Alex Rousseau was a four-time All-American and U.S. Olympic player and Vickers-McKinney was also an Olympian.

Congratulations to the new UCLA Hall of Fame inductees. All are incredible and I think a tweet like this from Boldon sum up the entire idea of the Hall of Fame.

Huge honor for me. I chose UCLA because of those who preceded me, and not just what they had done athletically. #bruins http://t.co/4eldCDcless than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply
