Colorado Sports Hall of Fame to induct six new members at 57th annual banquet

The Colorado Sports Hall of Fame will induct six new members at its 57th annual banquet in 2022, with former Broncos wide receiver and three-time Super Bowl champion Ed McCaffrey headlining the class.

McCaffrey, now the University of Northern Colorado football coach, will be inducted alongside Carol Callan, Chuck Williams, Darnell McDonald, Roger Kinney and DaVarryl Williamson, the Hall of Fame announced Tuesday.

Callan served as the women’s national team director for USA Basketball for 25 years — a period that saw the U.S. women win seven Olympic gold medals and five world championships. Williams, a high school basketball standout at Denver East and CU, played eight seasons in the ABA/NBA and was drafted by the 76ers in 1968.

McDonald starred for Cherry Creek in football and baseball and played seven seasons in Major League Baseball. Williamson, who went by the nickname “Touch of Sleep,” won 10 national titles as a boxer and had a 27-8 record as a professional with 23 knockouts. Kinney was instrumental in bringing the 1990 NCAA men’s basketball Final Four to Denver and helped behind the scenes to bring an MLB franchise to Colorado.

The 57th annual banquet is set for May 4 at the Hilton Denver City Center.
