Former Kansas State quarterback Michael Bishop and former Kansas basketball player Wayne Simien highlight the nine-person 2012 Kansas Sports Hall of Fame induction class.
The induction ceremony will be Oct. 7 in Wichita at the Sports Hall, located inside the Wichita Boathouse.
Kurt Budke, a Salina native and former Kansas City Kansas Community College coach, will be inducted posthumously. Budke, the Oklahoma State women’s basketball coach, died last November in a plane crash that killed four people.
Bishop and Simien were both All-Americans. Bishop led K-State to perhaps its greatest season (1998), achieving a No. 1 ranking during the year and finishing second in Heisman Trophy voting to Texas’ Ricky Williams. Simien was a member of two Final Four teams and three Big 12 championship teams and is 12th on KU’s career scoring list.
Also to be inducted are former KU quarterback David Jaynes, former University of Wichita distance runner Harold Manning, K-State basketball player Willie Murrell, KU basketball player Bud Stallworth, collegiate tennis coach David Snyder (Winfield), and Emporia State softball player Brenda Stolle.
