Rutgers Announces 2015 Hall of Fame Class

Rutgers announced its 2015 Hall of Fame class today, including football linebacker Gary Brackett, long-time baseball coach Fred Hill Sr. and basketball analyst and former coach Dick Lloyd.

The Rutgers Athletics Hall of Fame grew four men and one team stronger today when director Julie Hermann announced the 2015 class.

The 2015 class includes multiple headliners set for honors Sept. 26 during halftime off the football game against Kansas.

The Scarlet Knights welcome Gary Brackett, Fred Hill Sr., Dick Lloyd, Keith Cromwell and the 1990 men’s soccer team into their elite club.

“Not only has this class achieved tremendous competitive success, they have also served as great ambassadors for our university,” Hermann said in a statement. “We look forward to celebrating their many accomplishments."

Brackett is the best known of the group as a former Super Bowl captain and star walk-on, but each member brought value to the athletics brand.

Hill Sr., who retired after 30 years as the baseball coach, won 1,089 college games and put players like All-Star Todd Frazier into the major leagues.

Lloyd is most recently known as the color analyst for Rutgers basketball before he retired earlier this year. He spent 50 years with Rutgers in a variety of coaching and office roles.

Cromwell is Rutgers lacrosse’s all-time leading scorer and the 1990 men’s soccer team went all the way to the national championship game.
