BERKELEY -- Former NFL player Todd Steussie and ex-basketball star Sean Lampley head a list of eight athletes who have been selected for enshrinement into Cal's athletic Hall of Fame.
Also on the list is water polo great Heather Petri, the only four-time female Olympian in Cal history and the only Golden Bear athlete ever to win medals in four separate Olympic Games.
The eight athletes will be inducted Oct. 18, at the annual Hall of Fame banquet at the Greek Orthodox Church Conference Center in Oakland.
Steussie played on Cal's offensive line from 1990-93 before going to the Minnesota Vikings as the 19th overall pick in the 1994 draft. He spent 14 seasons in the league, playing for the Vikings, Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Bucs and St. Louis Cardinals. He was a two-time Pro Bowl selection who returned to Cal in 2010 to earn his bachelor's degree.
Lampley was Cal's all-time leading scorer with 1,776 points (since broken) when he completed his career in 2001. As a sophomore, he was named Most Valuable Player of the National Invitation Tournament for leading the Bears past Clemson in the championship game.
Petri has won a gold medal, two silvers and a bronze with Team USA in the Olympics. She has competed in four straight Olympics starting in 2000, when the U.S. team won the silver.
Others elected to the 28th Hall of Fame class include Rick Brown (track and field), Candace Harper (softball), Trisha Stafford-Odom (basketball), Staciana Stitts (swimming) and Gary Rogers (rowing).
