Former Terps men's basketball star Juan Dixon headlines the Class of 2012 for the University of Maryland Athletics Hall of Fame, officials announced Friday.
Dixon, Maryland's all-time leading scorer with 2,269 points, was the Most Outstanding Player in the 2002 NCAA tournament after leading the Terps to the national championship.
Football player Paul Vellano, father of current Terps defensive lineman Joe Vellano, field hockey player Carla Tagliente and women's lacrosse players Jen Adams and Sarah Forbes, as well as former baseball coach Tom Bradley and former women's lacrosse coach Cindy Timchal, will also be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Friday, Oct. 5, during a ceremony at Riggs Alumni Center.
Longtime 'M' Club fundraiser Leonard Rodman will be inducted into the Hall of Fame for meritorious service, and Tim Brant, a former football player at Maryland, will receive the 'M' Club's Distinguished Citizen of the Year Award as part of the festivities.
Tickets for the event can be purchased for $85 each, with tables for 10 people available for $800. Tickets can be purchased from the 'M' Club office at 301-314-2619.
