Crimson Club HOF to induct seven, including Andre Miller, Elaine Elliott and Kevin Dyson

This year’s Crimson Club Hall of Fame class is a bumper crop, including 15-year NBA veteran Andre Miller, 27-year women’s basketball coach Elaine Elliott and all-time receptions leader Kevin Dyson.

Also enshrined at the 2014 ceremony on Sept. 5 at Rice-Eccles Stadium will be all-time women’s soccer goal leader Amy Kofoed, all-time volleyball kills and blocks leader Kim Turner, five-time All-American gymnast Sandy Woolsey and the 1964 Liberty Bowl-winning Utah football team.

Miller, now with the Washington Wizards, ranks No. 9 in the NBA in career assists. In 2008, Miller endowed a $500,000 point guard scholarship at the U., where he led the Runnin’ Utes to the 1998 title game against Kentucky. He’s the U.’s all-time leader in assists (721) and (steals) and played in the NCAA tournament for four straight seasons.

Dyson was a Ute contemporary of Miller’s, snatching 192 receptions and being taken in the first round of the 1998 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. The Clearfield native went on to play for Carolina, San Diego and Washington before retiring in 2005. His brothers, defensive backs Andre and Patrick, also played at the U.

Elliott is notable not only for her longevity, but her sustained success. The Utes won 15 conference championships and went to 15 NCAA tournaments before her retirement in 2010, reaching the Sweet 16 in 2001 and the Elite Eight in 2006.
