Oregon Sports Hall of Fame Announces 2016 Class of Inductees

August- 17, 2016-The Oregon Sports Hall of Fame & Museum has announced its 2016 class of inductees. According to Mike Rose, induction chairman, the Hall of Fame will induct five new members to join over 350 prior inductees. The presentations will be made at the Multnomah Athletic Club, Wednesday, September 21.

This year’s class includes the 1994 U of O Rose Bowl team; Greg Strobel, OSU NCAA championship wrestler; Mike Hass, outstanding wide receiver at OSU and NFL; Brad Smith, championship girls basketball coach, Oregon City High School; and Maureen Murphy, outstanding swimmer in local, regional, national and Olympics competition.

This year’s ceremony will also mark the premier presentation of the new Schonely Award. Bill Schonely, "The Voice of the Trailblazers" for some 30 years, as well as a voice for worthy community causes for nearly one-half century, leveraged his celebrity stature to champion the diverse needs of adults and children alike.

Oregon is a better place due to his humanitarian efforts. Bill was inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 1999. This year’s recipient is Don Essig, long-time public address announcer at Autzen Stadium.

Each year the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame helps preserve Oregon’s rich sports heritage through its recognition of outstanding Oregon athletes and special contributors to sport.

In addition, Oregon Sports Hall of Fame college scholarships will be awarded to Oregon scholar-athletes, made possible by contributions from the MacTarnahan Family Trust. Six student-athletes will be awarded $3000 scholarships to be used for continuing their education at Oregon colleges and universities.

This year’s student athletes are: Bob Coleman - Hermiston HS; Reagan Shira - Adrian HS; Tyler Gustafson - Yoncalla HS; Cassandra Blum - Gilchrist HS; Edith Velasco - Riverside HS-Boardman; and Emma Gibbs - Oakland HS-Umpqua

The event will be held once again at the Multnomah Athletic Club, with a reception starting at 5:30 PM, followed by dinner and program at 7 PM. Veteran sportscaster, Bill Schonely will emcee the ceremony. Tickets are $125 per person; tables of 10 are $1200. Please call the Hall of Fame at 503/227-7466, email info@oregonsportshall.org. 

The Oregon Sports Hall of Fame recognizes and honors Oregon’s rich athletic history with our museum and annual induction and awards ceremony. The Hall of Fame’s goal is to inspire participation in sport and foster awareness of the values and life-long rewards gained from this participation.

The Oregon Sports Hall of Fame & Museum is currently closed to the public while seeking a new location, and can be reached at 503/227-7466, and www.oregonsportshall.org.
