Honeycutt, Williams in Tulane Hall of Fame

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Former Tulane basketball star Jerald Honeycutt and NFL receiver Roydell Williams are part of Tulane's 2013 Hall of Fame class.

The list of inductees released by the University on Sunday also includes former Green Wave pitcher Brandon Belanger, and standout sprinter Lana Garner.

Former sports information director Bill Curl also is on the list.

The class will be inducted on Thursday, Oct. 3 on the Tulane University Uptown campus. And they will be honored at halftime of the Green Wave's homecoming game against North Texas at the Superdome on Saturday, Oct. 5.

"We are fortunate and privileged to recognize such a distinguished group," athletic director Rick Dickson said. "Each of these recipients had outstanding careers at Tulane and has continued to be exemplary leaders and contributors to their respective communities. I am appreciative and grateful for the standards of excellence they helped establish that remain our goals as we move to the future."

Tulane said each of the four student-athletes in the 2013 class finished among the best performers in their respective sports.

Curl is being honored as "an early trailblazer in both the Tulane and New Orleans sports public relations community."

The Tulane Athletics Hall of Fame was established in 1977.
