Ward leads list of UNI Hall of Famers

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) -- Former NFL wide receiver Dedric Ward is among five former Northern Iowa stars to be inducted into the school's Hall of Fame.

Ward had 3,876 career yards receiving and 41 touchdown receptions for the Panthers from 1993-96. Those records still stand at both Northern Iowa and in the Missouri Valley Football Conference. Ward later played eight seasons in the NFL.

Former softball star Lindsay Wood, All-American wrestler Joel Greenlee and former volleyball player Molly O'Brien join Ward in this year's class.

Influential athletic department official Lee Miller and the 1964 football team round out the list of honorees.

This year's class will be inducted on Sept. 18, when Northern Iowa's football team hosts Stephen F. Austin.
