RSVP deadline Friday for TU Athletic Hall of Fame ceremony

TULSA — Fans have until this Friday to RSVP for the TU Athletic Hall of Fame ceremony scheduled for the first week of September. The 1991 Freedom Bowl Champion football team is this year's Honor Team, while baseball All-American Phil Honeycutt and soccer stars Huynh Bui and Amy Edwards are 2013 Hall of Fame inductees.

The reception and induction ceremony will take place on Thursday, Sept. 5, at 6:00 p.m. at the Lorton Performance Center on the TU campus. Tickets are $35 per person. Reservations only are accepted and must be made by calling the Golden Hurricane Club office at 918-631-2342. The deadline to make reservations is Friday, August 23.

This year's Honor Team, the 1991 Tulsa Football Team, posted a 10-2 record as an independent and claimed a 28-17 victory over a Marshall Faulk-led San Diego State team in the 1991 Freedom Bowl. The Hurricane, under Head Coach Dave Rader, finished the season ranked 21st nationally in the Associated Press and USA Today/CNN polls.

Phil Honeycutt (1969-71) was a Baseball All-America for the Golden Hurricane, while helping Tulsa reach the College World Series twice. In his career, Honeycutt batted .331 with nine home runs and 53 RBI. He was the second-leading hitter with a .353 average on Tulsa's 39-5 and CWS runner-up team in 1969. Honeycutt had a .411 batting average with 67 hits and 35 RBI in helping Tulsa finish in third place at the 1971 College World Series.

The first great player in a storied soccer tradition at The University of Tulsa was Huynh Bui (1980-83). He was a member of the first soccer team in school history in 1980 and helped lead the Hurricane to a 44-26-4 record in his four seasons. Bui scored 86 career points on 33 goals and 19 assists. He was the team-leader in scoring in 1980 and 1981 with 20 and 32 points, respectively.

Amy Edwards (1988-91) was a four-year letterwinner and starter for the Tulsa women's soccer team, and later became the school's head coach. She completed her playing career with 71 points on 30 goals and 11 assists to rank among the school's top-10 for career points, goals and assists. Edwards was a second-team all-South Region All-America selection in 1991 and was a member of the U.S. Olympic Festival South Team in 1994. She returned to TU as an assistant coach and served as head women's soccer coach for four years, compiling a 47-25-6 record.

The inductees will also be recognized at halftime of the Tulsa-Colorado State football game on Saturday, Sept. 7.
