BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Nine former University of Arkansas student-athletes, including five All-Americans, three all-conference selections and the owner of one of the most storied franchises in professional sports, make up the 2004 class of inductees into the UA Sports Hall of Honor.
Football greats Harry Jones, Wayne Martin, Jerry Jones and Brandon Burlsworth join basketball legends Jerry Carlton, Lee Mayberry and Tracy Webb Rice on this year’s distinguished list. Track and field standout Seneca Lassiter and tennis star Peter Doohan will also be honored as part of this year’s festivities.
Among many accomplishments, this year’s class combined to win 20 All-America distinctions, 36 all-conference accolades and played a part in 13 individual or team national championships.
Honorees were elected to the UA Sports Hall of Honor by a vote of former letterwinners in conjunction with the “A” Club. Burlsworth was elected posthumously.
The official induction is Sept. 3 at the Northwest Arkansas Convention Center in Springdale. For ticket information, call the Razorback Foundation at 479-443-9000.
