Three sports legends were inducted into the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame Saturday night.
Former Green Bay Packers DB Charles Woodson, Wisconsin Badgers RB Ron Dayne and professional golfer Sherri Steinhauer joined the elite group.
Thousands packed the UWM Panther Arena to honor the greats and say thank you for the memories. The stars said it was a humbly experience.
Ron Dayne might have been timid on stage, but when he was on the field he had no fear. He was a 4-year starter for the Wisconsin Badgers and is known as one of the greatest of all time. His career was highlighted by with a Heisman Trophy season.
Charles Woodson took the stage sharing stories about how at first, he wasn’t keen on the idea of living in Green Bay, but fell in love with its fans.
Wisconsin native Sherri Steinhauer shared memories of finding her passion for the game of golf as a shy girl in Madison — up to winning two major golf championships.
“For me this proves that dreams really do come true,” she said.
Steinhauer becomes just the ninth woman to be inducted into the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame.
Bud Selig was already a part of the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame. On Saturday he received the Lifetime Achievement Award. The former Major League Baseball commissioner said his great achievement is what he did for Brew City.
“It was bringing baseball back to Milwaukee and Wisconsin,” he said.
