KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame announced its 2021 class to be inducted in June.

The “Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2021 Special Presented by the Tennessee Titans” will debut as a two-hour televised special event Saturday, June 26 at 8 p.m. on MyVLT, which is channel 8.2.

Mike Keith, the voice of the Titans, will host the event celebrating sports in Tennessee.

“I have had the honor of hosting the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame induction and awards dinner since 2000, but I have to admit this year is quite different,” said Keith. “For years, I have had the pleasure of sharing the stories of the TSHF inductees and honorees. It is humbling to be part of this year’s inductees, especially since this group is so accomplished in their respective fields. When you combine everyone involved with “The Nashville Six”, it might be the most accomplished, special overall group that the TSHF has ever honored. This is a great show!”

The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame 2021 class includes the inductions of Bill Bates, Cathy Bender, Mike Caldwell, Cindy Parlow Cone, Todd Helton, Mary Lou Johns, Reggie Johnson, Mike Keith, David Poile, Brandon Rowland and Tommy Woods.

The Class of 2021 of honorees will also include Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry as Tennessean of the Year, Memphis Grizzlies’ Ja Morant and Seattle Storm and former Middle Tennessee State Star Alysha Clark will be honored as Pro Athletes of the Year and the Tennessee Titans as Pro Team of the Year.

University of Tennessee’s Women’s Athletic Director Emeritus Joan Cronan will be honored with the David Williams Significant Historical Achievement Award. Jerry Robertson, former head athletic trainer at East Tennessee State University and Southeast Athletic Trainers’ Association Merit Award winner, will receive the Pat Summit Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Nashville Six, the members of the Nashville Police department that worked to evacuate residents leading up to the explosion on Christmas morning, will be honored with the Courage Award.
