ULM Sports Hall of Fame inductees announced
The L Club in conjunction with the ULM Alumni Association and the ULM Athletic Foundation announced its 2008 ULM Sports Hall of Fame induction class on Tuesday.
The class of Claude Brumfield (football), John David Crow (football coach & administration), Glenn Flemming (football), Jimmy Walker (men's basketball) and Don Warren (track & field) will all be inducted during Hall of Fame Weekend April 4-5 in Monroe, La.
"This is an exciting time for the L Club and its sponsorship of the Sports Hall of Fame," L Club president Bob Cooper said. "Each of these inductees represents former letter award winners and the university in a way we can all take pride. They are now formally recognized as a permanent part of the most distinguished letter award winners from ULM and we look forward to honoring their selection."
The weekend includes a golf tournament at Pine Hills on Friday at 1:00 and the induction ceremony at noon on Saturday in the SUB Ballroom.
Brumfield was one of the team captains for the 1987 1-AA National Championship Football Team. Claude made the Kodak, Walter Camp, Sports Network, Football News and AP All-American teams in 1987. He was a first-team all-conference and all-state selection in 1987 and a second-team all conference in 1986. Brumfield had 27 tackles in 1984, 33 in 1985, 52 in 1986 and 50 tackles in 1987.
Coach Crow served as ULM's head football coach and athletic director for five years. In 1980 he registered his best season 7-4-0 and in 1980 guided his squad to a 6-4-1 mark. He was a near-unanimous choice for the Louisiana "Coach of the Year" in 1980. Coach Crow was also only the second Heisman Trophy winner to be a collegiate head coach. While athletic director, Coach Crow was instrumental in the construction of the Malone Stadium and ULM Baseball complex.
