There will be five new additions to the SDSU Hall of Fame.
There's a Prefontaine in the group – no, not THAT Prefontaine - but there are two track stars and a pair of football players in the 2016 class.
Basketball player Kawhi Leonard headlines the list.
Before he became an NBA MVP and the reigning league Defensive Player of the Year, Leonard led the Aztecs to the Sweet 16 and the program’s first NCAA tournament victory. He is well-known for his work ethic and humble attitude in addition to his many talents and achievements.
Sprinter Steve Williams and hurdler Miesha McKelvy-Jones will also be honored.
Punter Noel Prefontaine represents the Aztec football team along with Leon Parma, who was the SDSU starting quarterback in 1950.
The official induction ceremony will take place during a luncheon at the Payne Parma Goodall Alumni Center on Friday, Oct. 21, and the new class will be recognized later that evening on the field at halftime of SDSU’s home football game against San José State, which kicks off at 7:30 p.m. PT.
