On Thursday, June 5, at the MIAA-Awards Ceremony at the Kansas City Public Library in Kansas City, Mo., the 10-member class was announced.
Broyles coached the PSU football team to the 1991 NCAA Division II National Championship along with national championship appearances in 1992, 1995 and 2004 while posting an MIAA record of 198 victories during his 20-year tenure as head coach from 1990-2009. Broyles has also earned NCAA Division II National Coach of the Year honors three times. In addition, Broyles also posted a record nine MIAA titles and 15 trips to the NCAA Division II playoffs and was inducted into the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame in 2013.
Gammon, who went on to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers, the New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs during a 15-year NFL career, was a first-team NCAA Division II All-American at PSU. Playing as an offensive guard, he helped the Gorillas win the 1991 National Championship with a 13-1-1 record. He also earned first-team All-MIAA honors in each of his final three seasons at PSU.
