Former basketball star Morris Peterson, football player and coach Henry Bullough, hockey players Ryan Miller and Kip Miller and volleyball standout Jenna Wrobel are part of a five-member class that will be inducted into Michigan State’s Athletic Hall of Fame this fall.
MSU announced the class on Saturday evening. The class will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sept. 12, and recognized during the Spartans’ home game against Youngstown State on Sept. 14.
“We’re excited about inducting another elite class into the MSU Athletics Hall of Fame,” MSU athletic director Mark Hollis said in a released statement. “We really look forward to the unique opportunity to celebrate the achievement of student-athletes being awarded their first varsity letter jacket in conjunction with honoring our best of the best with the Hall of Fame induction ceremony.”
Bullough was a three-year starter as a guard, and helped MSU to a combined record of 21-7 (.750) from 1952-54, including the 1952 national title.
Kip Miller is part of a prominent hockey family in MSU history and is a cousin of Ryan Miller. He is one of the program’s most prolific scorers, registering the third-most points (261) and goals (116) in school history, and finishing among the top 10 in four other categories.
Ryan Miller was a standout goaltender and won the Hobey Baker Award. He still ranks as one of the top goalies in NCAA history and has enjoyed a successful NHL career with the Buffalo Sabres.
Peterson was the 2000 Big Ten Player of the Year, a 2000 All-American and a two-time first-team all-conference honoree. He was part of MSU’s national championship team in 2000.
Wrobel is MSU’s all-time leader in kills and one of only four first-team All-Americans in program history. She is MSU volleyball’s only four-time, first-team All-Big Ten honoree.
