San Jose native Eric Guerrero, a three-time state champion from Independence High, was named to the National Wrestling Hall of Fame's class of 2014.

The 2004 Olympian also is a four-time All-American for Oklahoma State, where he won NCAA titles from 1997-99.

Guerrero, now the Cowboys' associate head coach, will be inducted in June in Stillwater, Okla.

Guerrero, 36, wrestled at 132 pounds in an international career that included four world championships.

"To be inducted as a distinguished member is a humbling honor," Guerrero said in a statement Thursday. "I am happy for my parents as they sacrificed much, so we could chase our dreams.

"Many people may not know, but my wife's grandfather, Peter Steele Blair, is a distinguished member, so it's nice to at least be tied for best wrestler in the family."
