NASHVILLE — Former Tennessee Titans running back Eddie George will be part of the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame class inducted on May 17.

George was receiving a curtain call for his starring performance Thursday in the Nashville Shakespeare Festival’s production of “Othello” when Hall of Fame Executive Director Bill Emendorfer surprised him with the news.

The rest of the induction class consists of former basketball stars Popeye Jones, Bridgette Gordon and Carolyn Peck; former major league pitcher Claude Osteen; former NFL linebacker Paul Naumoff; longtime Nashville sportscaster Hope Hines; former Kingsbury High baseball star Allie Prescott; and former Austin Peay football standout and Brentwood Academy coach Carlton Flatt.

Former Tennessee State quarterback Eldridge Dickey and former high school basketball coach Dorsey Sims will be inducted posthumously.
