Griz HOF banquet ticket deadline nears

MISSOULA — The deadline to purchase tickets for the Grizzly Sports Hall of Fame induction banquet, which is slated for Friday, Sept. 5, is Tuesday, Sept. 2, by noon at the Adams Center Box Office.

This year’s inductees are record-setting running backs, Yohance Humphery and Dick Imer. They will be formally inducted into the Grizzly Sports Hall of Fame on Friday, Sept. 5, at a no-host social and banquet hosted by the Doubletree.  Cost for the banquet is $35.

The two new inductees will also be introduced at mid-field the following day, Saturday, Sept. 6, prior to the Grizzlies’ 2014 football home opener against Central Washington.

Humphery, from Eagle River, Alaska, played at Montana from 1998-2001.  He is the school’s all-time leading rusher with  4,070 career yards.  He also holds Montana’s single-season rushing record with 1,658 yards in 2001, which is the season Montana won its second Division I-AA national title.

From Highland, Indiana, Imer had an exceptional two-year career at Montana. When he finished playing in 1954 he was Montana’s all-time leader in career rushing yards and yards per carry.  He still holds the school mark for average yards per carry at 8.17 (86 carries for 703 yards, 1953), and is currently ranked 12th in career rushing yards with 1,592 in just 16 career games.
