PULLMAN – Former Washington State quarterback Ryan Leaf is one of six individuals set to join the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame, Athletic Director Pat Chun announced Friday.

“The 2019 WSU Athletic Hall of Fame class is an outstanding group of former student-athletes and contributors who have brought tremendous pride and recognition to Washington State University,” Chun said in a school release. “We look forward to recognizing their great accomplishments and welcoming them back to campus later this fall.”

The honorees will join the current 217 individuals and teams in the WSU Athletic Hall of Fame. The induction dinner will be held Sept. 6 at the Davenport Grand Hotel in Spokane.

Leaf set numerous Pac-10 and WSU single-season and career records, finished third in the 1997 Heisman Trophy voting and led the Cougars to the 1998 Rose Bowl.

Joining Leaf in induction will be Josephat Kapkory (track and field/cross country, 1991-94); Stephanie Papke (volleyball, 1994-97); Ellannee Richardson (track and field, 2004-07); Lisa Roman (rowing, 2010-12) and Rod Commons (administration, 1976-2007).
