Former NFL player Todd Steussie and ex-basketball star Sean Lampley head a list of eight athletes who were selected to Cal's athletic Hall of Fame.

Also on the list is water polo great Heather Petri (Miramonte High), the only four-time female Olympian in Cal history and the only Golden Bears athlete to win medals in four games.

Others elected to the 28th Hall class are Rick Brown (track and field), Candace Harper (softball), Trisha Stafford-Odom (basketball), Staciana Stitts (swimming) and Gary Rogers (rowing).

The eight will be inducted Oct. 18 at the Hall of Fame banquet at the Greek Orthodox Church Conference Center in Oakland.

Steussie played on Cal's offensive line from 1990-93 before going to the Minnesota Vikings as the 19th overall draft pick in 1994. He spent 14 seasons in the league and was a two-time Pro Bowl selection.

Lampley was Cal's all-time leading scorer with 1,776 points (since broken) when he completed his career in 2001.
