A World Series-winning pitcher, WNBA draft pick and the third-most accurate kicker in NFL history headline the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame's six-member class for 2011.
The inductees are:
* Brad Clontz, a Hokies pitcher in the early 1990s who helped the Atlanta Braves claim the 1995 World Series.
Clontz won a Tech-record 12 games in 1992 and was 8-1 as a rookie during Atlanta's championship season. He played six years in the majors and lives in Alpharetta, Ga., where he is an independent casino marketing host.
* Tere Williams, Tech's career rebounding leader and a 2001 draft choice of the Phoenix Mercury.
Williams led the Hokies in scoring and rebounding in each of her four seasons and helped them reach the Sweet 16 of the 1999 NCAA tournament. An aspiring jazz musician and the first WNBA draft pick in school history, she lives in her native Chapel Hill, N.C.
* Shayne Graham, whose last-second, 44-yard field goal at West Virginia preserved the Hokies' unbeaten 1999 regular season en route to the national championship game.
Graham set Tech and Big East career scoring records with 371 points before heading to the NFL, where he became a Pro Bowler renowned for accuracy. He kicked seven seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals and last year for the New England Patriots and is presently a free agent.
* Phil Rogers, who as a tailback in 1973 became the school's first 1,000-yard rusher.
As a senior in '75, Rogers became Tech's first African-American quarterback, running coach Jimmy Sharpe's wishbone and leading the Hokies to an 8-3 record that included wins at Auburn and Houston. Rogers lives in Blacksburg and has worked at the Radford Army Ammunition Plant for 30 years.
* Josh Feldman, a heavyweight wrestler who finished seventh at the 1994 NCAA championships to earn All-America honors.
A three-time Colonial Athletic Association champion, Feldman has coached at Great Bridge in Chesapeake and the University of Virginia. He is a lieutenant commander and aviator in the Navy stationed at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard and serving overseas with Maritime Expeditionary Security Squadron Two.
* John Moody, a Tech football player during the 1950s and an athletics fund-raiser at the school for nearly 40 years.
Moody coached football and track at Norfolk's Norview High before returning to Tech in 1972. In 2008, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association of Athletic Directors of Development.
The six will be inducted Oct. 7 and recognized the following day at halftime of the Hokies' football game against Miami.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
