West Tabbed for Induction into MIAA Hall of Fame

Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Ronnie West, the first and only wide receiver in NCAA Division II history to capture the Harlon Hill Trophy as the national player of the year, has been tabbed for induction into the 2013 Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Hall of Fame class.

West captured the Harlon Hill Award as the NCAA Division II National Player of the Year in 1991, leading Pitt State to a 13-1-1 record and the NCAA-II National Championship. He was named the MIAA Player of the Year that season, catching 74 passes for 1,495 yards and 14 touchdowns, setting the MIAA single-season receiving record that season.

The Pineview, Ga., native was a two-time first-team All-MIAA selection and finished his career with 123 receptions for 2,521 yards and 27 touchdowns (all Pitt State records). West was a two-time first-team All-America selection (1990-91). He led Division II in punt returns and ranked second nationally in kickoff returns as a junior in 1990.

West was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the ninth round of the 1992 NFL Draft, but his professional career was cut short by a knee injury.

West, and nine other conference greats, will be formally inducted into MIAA Hall of Fame on June 6, 2013 at the Kansas City Public Library – Plaza Branch, 4801 Main Street in Kansas City, Mo. The event will be held in the Truman Forum Auditorium. Tickets for the event are available by visiting www.themiaa.com/sb_output.aspx?form=4 and filling out the form. Tickets will be given out on a first come, first serve basis.
