The Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame announced it 2014 inductees Friday at the Frazier History Museum in Louisville.
They are former Manual and Michigan State running back Sherman Lewis, who served on the coaching staffs of the San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions; former Louisville defensive lineman Elvis Dumervil, formerly of the Denver Broncos and now with the Baltimore Ravens; former Kentucky and Miami Dolphins star Larry Seiple, who later coached with Detroit, Tampa Bay and Miami; and former Louisville and Miami Dolphins and Green Bay Packers receiver Mark Clayton.
In addition, the Centre College football team will be inducted.
“We take delight in remembering that Centre was, in fact, a national power in collegiate sports between 1917 and throughout the 1920s,” said Dr. John Roush, president of Centre. “Bo McMillan and several of his teammates were among the best football players in the country during that time, and Centre’s 1921 team of C6HO fame stands as an important part of the college’s story as a place where extraordinary things occur on a regular basis.”
Frank Minnifield, out of Henry Clay and the University of Louisville and a former cornerback for the Cleveland Browns, will receive the eighth annual Blanton Collier Award for Integrity, named after the former UK and Browns coach.
The official induction ceremony weekend will take place in Louisville with a ring ceremony on Friday, June 19, followed by a golf-outing fundraiser at Covered Bridge, and the awards banquet at the Brown Hotel on Saturday, June 20.
Proceeds will support the Children’s Hospital Foundation, Norton Kosair Children’s Hospital and its Brave Hearts, a support group of local families united by their children’s fight for life after being born with complex congenital heart defects that require heart surgery.
