Tellez selected for recreated SWC Hall of Fame
Legendary track and field coach Tom Tellez will join eight others in the inaugural class of the Southwest Conference Hall of Fame.
The 2013 class, which includes Texas baseball and basketball player Jay Arnette, Texas A&M softball coach Bob Brock, Texas Tech basketball player Rick Bullock, Rice football player Trevor Cobb, Southern Methodist University basketball player Gene Phillips and Texas Christian University athletic director Frank Windegger, is the first SWC class since 1995.
An induction ceremony will be held for the nine candidates at 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 28 at Double Tree Hotel’s Campbell Center in Dallas.
The Texas Sports Hall of Fame recreated the SWC Hall of Honor and named it the SWC Hall of Fame after the organization disbanded in 1996. In the future, each former member will have their own selection committee to select the individuals to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Shuttles will not be provided for the Cougars’ Saturday contest with Rice at Reliant Stadium.
Student tickets will cost $10 and can be purchased at the ticket office at the Athletics/Alumni Center prior to the game. Students are allowed up to 4 guest tickets for $20 each. The game will feature $1 hot dogs while supplies last.
