Utah’s newest Crimson Club Hall of Famers will be inducted on Friday, Sept. 22 at the Jon M. Huntsman Center. The class also will be honored and recognized at the Utah football game against UCLA the following day on September 23.

Additionally, women’s basketball player Soni Adams, gymnast Annabeth Eberle, skier Anke Friedrich, distance runner Amanda Mergaert, and men’s basketball player Hanno Möttölä will also be inducted into a class that features some of the best to ever do it for Utah Athletics.
“The tremendous history of Utah Athletics has been written by those whose achievements stand above all others, and this year’s Hall of Fame class emphatically illustrates that,” Athletic Director Mark Harlan said. “All six inductees, and two of the greatest teams in our history, exemplify that, and I especially want to recognize my predecessor, Dr. Chris Hill, for the impact he made on Utah Athletics and the University of Utah.”
The Utes have had unprecedented success in football, women’s basketball, skiing, gymnastics and track and field this past season, making it incredibly fitting the 2023 Crimson Club Hall of Fame class represents those who set the foundation for those programs beforehand.
