The TCU Lettermen’s Association Hall of Fame inducted six members Thursday night at the Brown-Lupton University Union. Here’s a list of the inductees and their accomplishments:

Kim Collins (men’s track and field, 2000-01): A three-time NCAA champion, he still holds school records in the indoor 60-meter (6.53) and outdoor 200-meter (20.08) dash. A native of Basseterre, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Collins was a six-time All-American during his two years with the Frogs. He won NCAA titles in the 60, 200 and 4x100 relay in ‘01. He’s one of only three Frogs to claim more than one national title. He competed in the Olympics in 1996, 2000, ’04 and ’08 and became the first athlete from St. Kitts to qualify for an Olympic final in the 100-meter dash. He won the gold in the 100 at the ’03 IAAF World Championships in Paris.

Wilson Groseclose (football/basketball, 1933-35): He played offensive tackle for Dutch Meyer’s national championship team and also played basketball. He served as the TCU Lettermen’s Association president in 1971. He earned all-Southwest Conference honors in football in 1934 and ’35 and was an honorable mention Associated Press All-American in ’35. He was drafted by the Boston Redskins in 1936 and was Fort Worth ISD principal. He’s being honored posthumously.

Paul Robinson (men’s tennis, 1993-96): He’s the most decorated singles player in school history, finishing as the nation’s third-ranked player as a senior in 1996. He was an All-American three times each in singles and doubles. He holds TCU records for singles victories (144) and is second with career-combined wins (238). He won the SWC No. 1 singles titles three consecutive seasons (’94-’96) and two doubles titles (’95-’96).

Bo Schobel (football, 2000, 2002-03): The two-time All-Conference USA selection had the top season for a TCU defensive end in 2003, finishing with 17 sacks, third most in the nation, and was a Ted Hendricks Award finalist and a second team AP All-American. His 28.5 sacks are second all-time at TCU. Schobel played five seasons in the NFL and earned a championship ring with the Indianapolis Colts.

Bobby Stewart (football, 1978-80): He led the Frogs in receiving in 1979 and ’80 and finished with more than 1,000 yards in his career. He led the SWC in receiving and earned all-conference honors and third-team All-American honors.

Stevanie Wadsworth Ferguson (women’s track and field, 1993-95): She earned five All-America honors and four SWC championships in the shot put. Her shot put records for both indoor (55-01/4) and outdoor (56-43/4) still stand at TCU. She claimed the 1993 NCAA Outdoor silver in the shot put.
