Diverse group to be inducted into UNLV Athletics Hall of Fame

Six different sports will be represented at the UNLV Athletics Hall of Fame induction ceremony at the M Resort on Oct. 1.

This year’s class consists of men’s golfer Jeremy Anderson (1996-2000), men’s soccer player Daniel Barber (1989-92), softball player Julie Crandall (1995-98), football player Nick Garritano (1991-94), baseball player Ryan Ludwick (1997-99), men’s tennis coach Larry Easley (1992-2003), the 1994 football team, the 1985 men’s soccer team and longtime donor Bob Mendenhall. Palms owner George Maloof, a former UNLV football player, will receive the inaugural Silver Rebel Award to honor his accomplishments following his UNLV athletic career.

With the new inductees, the UNLV Athletics Hall of Fame will grow to 105 members. Former student-athletes must have completed their eligibility at least 10 years earlier to be selected, while coaches and administrators must have ceased working for the university for at least five years to be eligible.
