BYU inducted four former all-Americans and a national hall of fame coach into the BYU Athletic Hall of Fame on Friday.

The class included former NFL All-Pro tight end Chad Lewis, Bruce Kleege (tennis), Cathy Nixon (basketball), Tea Nieminen (volleyball) and Gary Pullins (baseball coach). The five inductees will also be honored during a special halftime presentation at the BYU-Eastern Washington game today.

Since its inception in 1975, more than 150 athletes, coaches and administrators have been inducted into the BYU Athletic Hall of Fame. Among the criteria for induction are All-American status, university graduation, professional accomplishments and community service.
