Jim Tressel, Youngstown State's former football coach and athletic director, headlines a class of seven newly elected into the YSU Athletics Hall of Fame, the university announced Tuesday.
Joining Tressel, who won 135 games and led the Penguins to four Division I-AA national championships in 15 seasons at YSU, are Darnell Clark (football), LeVar Greene (football), Tom Harder (football), Anthony Hunt (men’s basketball), Santi Nalluri (women’s tennis) and Mark Thomas (baseball).
The new class will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday, Nov. 16, when the Penguins host two-time defending national champion North Dakota State in the annual Hall of Fame Game.
