FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Six CSU student-athletes including former football All-American Greg Myers, were recognized Friday night at the Hall of Fame dinner in Fort Collins.
Myers, a two-time All-American and Academic All-American, and four-time all-conference performer, will be inducted into the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame Dec. 4 in New York City. He was recognized as the winner of the 2012 Keli McGregor Award for his post-graduate accomplishments.
The award is named in honor of its namesake, who was a football All-American who later played in the NFL before embarking upon a career in sports management, including as president of the Colorado Rockies baseball club until his untimely passing in April of 2010.
The list of honorees includes:
Katie Frank, daughter of William Nye – the namesake of The Nye Trophy, which is awarded annually to the Most Outstanding Male Student-Athlete, was on hand during Saturday’s football game between the Rams and Hawaii. Frank presented memorabilia to be displayed in the CSU Athletics Hall of Fame Room.
