TROY, Ala. – Eight former Troy University student-athletes, administrators and coaches will be enshrined into the Troy University Sports Hall of Fame on Saturday, April 20, Athletic Director John Hartwell announced Thursday afternoon.

The second class into the Troy University Sports Hall of Fame consists of John Archer (men's basketball), John "Doc" Anderson (track & field/cross country; administration), Bobby Enslen (football), Chan Gailey (football), Danny Grant (football), Joyce Sorrell (women's basketball; administration), Willie Tullis (football) and Lawrence Tynes (football).

"Troy has a tremendous athletics history and the eight selections for the 2013 Troy University Sports Hall of Fame class are outstanding representatives of our past," Hartwell said. "In addition to their athletic accomplishments which speak for themselves, they have also been great ambassadors for Troy University throughout their communities and across the country. On behalf of Troy University, would like to congratulate them of this prestigious honor and thank them for their service to Troy University."

The induction ceremony will be the premier event of a busy T-Club Weekend on campus. The Troy baseball and softball teams will host Sun Belt Conference series, while the Trojan football team will play its annual T-Day Spring Game at 11 a.m. on the morning of the ceremony.

"The 2013 Troy University Sports Hall of Fame Banquet will be the culmination of a exciting weekend on our campus," Hartwell said. "We are excited to move the banquet to April this year to coincide with our T-Club Weekend so that more of our former athletes will have an opportunity to attend the banquet that will honor their teammates and coaches."

Seats for the ceremony in Trojan Arena can be purchased for $100 each and tables can be purchased for $800. Sponsorships are also available for the evening. For more information or to purchase tickets contact the Troy Athletic Department at 334-670-3482.
