Okla. Sports Hall to add 6

The 2014 inductees for the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame were announced on Thursday. Six individuals will be a part of the induction class at the 2014 ceremony in August.

Headlining that group will be former Oklahoma quarterback J.C. Watts. Former rodeo champion Roy Cooper, Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett, All-American and Pro Bowl defensive end Leslie O’Neal, four-time Major League Baseball All-Star Darrell Porter and Olympic coach Gerald Tucker will also be inducted. Porter and Tucker will be inducted posthumously.

“We are honored to be inducting these individuals into the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame,” said Eddie Griffin, president of the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame and former Northeastern State athletic director. “This year’s inductees are respected citizens and athletes; a remarkable group of champions representing rodeo, contributors, baseball, basketball and football. All have record-setting careers. This induction group truly represents how great the state of Oklahoma is.”
