CONCORD -- Former NFL players Matt Gutierrez and Demetrius Williams are part of De La Salle High's 2014 athletic hall of fame class.

The new inductees, who also include Rob Lambert, Greg Brown-Davis, Joe See, John Wilhelmy, the 1985 football team and the 1996 soccer team, were announced Wednesday. Sean Farnham will also be honored at the Oct. 26 induction ceremony as the school's Distinguished Alumnus of the Year.

Williams and Gutierrez both played football for De La Salle during the program's national-record 151-game winning streak.

Gutierrez played at Michigan and Idaho State before he entered the NFL, and Williams was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens out of Oregon. Both athletes also played basketball for De La Salle.

Lambert, a 1981 graduate, was a standout in football and baseball.

Brown-Davis (1997) excelled in football, wrestling and diving.

See (2001) was a four-year varsity basketball player who led De La Salle to a state championship while setting school scoring records.

Wihelmy, an orthopedic surgeon, is the father of three De La Salle graduates and was instrumental in building the school's close relationship with Muir Orthopaedic Specialists.

The 1985 football team played before the program began its record winning streak, but was the first De La Salle team to earn a national ranking and outscored opponents 323-69 while winning the North Coast Section title.
