Kelly Downs, Ed Eyestone, Scott Mitchell, Cael Sanderson and the late Wayne Estes have been selected for induction in the Utah Sports Hall of Fame. The annual ceremony will be held Sept. 17 at the Little America Hotel.
Downs, a Viewmont High School graduate, pitched in the major leagues for eight years with San Francisco and Oakland. He appeared in the 1989 World Series with the Giants.
Eyestone, a Bonneville High School and BYU alumnus, won NCAA championships in cross country and in the 5,000 and 10,000 meters in track and field. The current BYU head track and field coach also competed in Olympic marathons in 1988 and '92.
Mitchell, from Springville High School and the University of Utah, played in 97 NFL games as a quarterback for Miami, Detroit, Baltimore and Cincinnati -- making two playoff appearances with the Lions. He threw 69 touchdown passes in his time at Utah.
Sanderson, from Wasatch High School, went 159-0 in four years as an Iowa State wrestler -- one of the greatest achievements in college sports history. He also won a gold medal in the 2004 Olympics. As Penn State's coach, Sanderson won four consecutive NCAA wrestling titles from 2011-14.
In February 1965, on the night he topped the 2,000-point mark in his Utah State basketball career, Estes passed away. He was averaging 33.7 points as a senior and was posthumously named to All-America teams. Estes is still the No. 3 scorer in Aggie history.
