Washington State will induct Steve Gleason into the WSU Athletic Hall of Fame this year and Gleason will be the lone member of the 2014 class. Gleason's induction will be recognized during a home game this season.

"Steve exemplifies all we stand for at Washington State University and will be our exclusive honoree for the 2014 class," Bill Moos said, via a release. "It's an opportunity to focus on everything he has accomplished, as a student-athlete, as a professional athlete and as a role model and hero for so many. After consultation with the Hall of Fame committee, I felt it was appropriate, and most deserving, to have Steve as the lone inductee this year. Throughout his battle with ALS, he has served as an inspiration to Cougars young and old."

Gleason played both football and baseball during his WSU career. He was a captain for three seasons, two in football and one in baseball. In addition to his exploits on the field, he was a four-time All-Academic selection in football.
