WACO, Texas - The Texas Sports Hall of Fame had its annual inductions in Waco and each class usually has a burnt orange flair to it and this year was no different.
University of Texas national title winning quarterback Vince Young took his place among the greatest Lone Star State athletes. Young's induction happened this year but it's clear he cemented his HOF status 13 years ago.
"I just fell like the guy that we had. The team. The coaches. The Fans. We were all on one accord. We were the underdogs. Didn't nobody like us. We were just 12-0 for nothing. I was like, "Actually we worked hard for that," Young says. "I really felt like we shocked the world and we wanted it more and we wanted more of that respect that we weren't been given."
Other inductees from UT include Olympic gold medalist and swimming national champion Jill Sterkel, women's basketball great and coach of Team USA's 2000 Olympic gold medal winning team Nell Fortner and women's basketball standout and former state title winning coach at Westlake Cathy Self Morgan.
Texas Rangers great Michael Young and Texas A&M quarterback and Super Bowl winning coach Gary Kubiak were also inducted.
