COLUMBIA — Former Missouri quarterback Brad Smith leads the newest class of six athletes in the Missouri Hall of Fame.

The New York Jets' special teams star was a four-year starter at Missouri who set nearly 70 school, Big 12 and NCAA records before leaving in 2005. Smith was the first player in Division I to throw for 8,000 yards and rush for 4,000 yards in his career.

Others who will be honored at the Feb. 11 induction ceremony are Scott Anderson; Lindsey Hunter; Khris Whelan; Hank Kuhlmann and Madill "Bud" Gartiser.

Anderson was a football center in the early 1970s, Hunter an All-American volleyball player. Whelan was a two-time wrestling All-American; Kuhlmann played football and baseball in the '50s and later was football coach; and Gartiser was a four-time champion hurdler.
