Mizzou’s Andy Hill, Gary Link, and Dr. Mark Adams Inducted into Hall of Fame


Three Mizzou Tiger Legends were inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. Football’s Andy Hill, basketball’s Gary Link and medical specialist Dr. Mark Adams will be showcased permanently at Missouri’s highest level.

Hill was surprised that he would even be there.

“In November I got a phone call,” Hill recollected, “and I thought it was someone trying to get a phone number for Chase Coffman, Jeremy Maclin or Justin Smith. So I called him back and said, ‘What can I help you with?’ And he said, ‘You’re getting inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame.’ You’ve got to be kidding me.”

Link described his induction experience that he shared with a couple of good friends. “Going in with Andy Hill, going in with Dr. Adams, that’s what makes it really special.”

Dr. Adams echoed with the same sentiment saying, “I found out not long after that I was going in with two very close friends, Gary Link and Andy Hill. It’s just an honor to be around all these athletes, people who have contributed so much to sports.”
