Keith Bogans headlines UK’s 2014 Hall of Fame Class

The University of Kentucky announced today that it will induct six new members to its Athletics Hall of Fame this fall. Headlining the group is former basketball standout, Keith Bogans.

Bogans ranks fourth on UK’s all-time scoring list with 1,923 points and second in three-point field goals made with 254, trailing only Tony Delk’s 283. He’s about to enter his 12th season in the NBA and his UK trophy case includes AP Third Team All-American, NABC Second Team All-American, All-SEC, All-SEC Tournament Team, All-SEC Freshman Team, and 2003 SEC Tournament MVP honors.

Bogans is joined by:

Pat Etcheberry, Track and Field (1963-67, 1967-89)

Etcheberry won the SEC Championship in javelin in 1966 and later became assistant track coach, head track coach and UK’s first strength and conditioning coach. According to the release from UK, he also trained several world class athletes such as Pete Sampras, Monica Seles, Nick Faldo, Dan Jansen and Charles Woodson, plus former Wildcats Rex Chapman, Kenny Walker and Dermontti Dawson.

Marty Moore, Football (1990-93)

Moore played linebacker on the UK football team before an eight-year career in the NFL. He was named First Team All-SEC by both the AP and Coaches in 1993, his senior season, earning him Mr. Irrelevant honors as the last pick in the 1994 NFL Draft.

Passion Richardson, Women’s Track and Field (1994-97)

Richard was a four time All-American in the 55 meters, 100 meters and 4×100-meter relay during her time at UK. She went on to win a bronze medal on the U.S. 4×100-meter relay team in the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

Terry Shumpert, Baseball (1985-87)

Shumpert was a standout on the UK Baseball team, where he ranks third in school history in stolen bases with 66. He was drafted in the second round of the 1987 MLB Draft by the Kansas City Royals and played 14 years in the bigs.

Sarah Witten, Women’s Tennis (2000-03)

The older sister of former men’s tennis star Jesse Witten, Sarah Witten ranks as the only player in UK women’s tennis history to earn three consecutive All-America selections. She is also one of only two players with four career All-America accolades, one in singles in 2003 and three in doubles in 2001, 2002, and 2003.

 

The six Wildcat greats will be inducted in late September during Hall of Fame Weekend when Vanderbilt comes to town for a football game.

Go Cats.

    I forget how the rules work (and i think they were altered recently) but does this mean he’s eligible to get his jersey retired in rupp now?

      A player is eligible to have their jersey retired in Rupp Arena after they have been a member of the UK Athletics Hall of Fame for a minimum of 5 years. So, 5 years from now, yes, he’ll be eligible.

    If he does get in the Hall of Fame I hope they spell his name with an S.

    I still Marty Moore would’ve held on to that game ending interception in the waning moments of the ’93 Peach Bowl vs Clemson.

      That was my first thought when I saw his name, too. Heartbreaking play! But he really was a great player!

    Marty Moore fumbling that interception was right up there with the Chris Doering miracle catch to beat UK as my two most heartbreaking games I was at. Oh and that time Miss St went for 2 to win in final seconds (early ninties?). Wow…there were just sooooo many though, I’m sure we all can cite 2-5 games we watched/were at when UK snatched defeat from the jaws of victory…lol.

    Couldn’t be happier for Keith Bogans, came in as one of the best prospects and grew as a player and a man each season, culminating with being the team leader and captain to one of the most underrated teams in that 2002-03 squad.

    Congrats to Bog’s and all the rest of the honored athletes!

    Cats.

    Etcheberry used to be my neighbor when I lived in Kentucky. I recall he was training Jennifer Capriati during her heyday.

    Pat Etcheberry was assistant coach when I ran track at UK. If you let him stretch you, there was a great deal of pain and you just knew your hamstrings were going to pop like popcorn. Congrats Coach!

    Wasn’t Marty Moore Mr. Irrelevant in the NFL draft?
