So Much Sports Hall of Fame – 5th Class

SMS HOF

So Much Sports is proud to announce the induction of the fifth class to be inducted into the So Much Sports Hall of Fame and it’s another great one. This class has a great mix with three athletes, two coaches and three contributors. Among the athletes, two are faces of women’s sports, in Mia Hamm, who is still to this day the face of women’s soccer, not only in America, but around the world. And Martina Navritalova, who is clearly one of the greatest tennis players in history, joins her. The third athlete is the all-time great ‘Sugar’ Ray Robinson, who to most is still regarded as the greatest pound-for-pound boxer ever and the most technically sounds fighter of all time.

From the sidelines, on the first ballot he was eligible, ‘The Zen Master’ himself Phil Jackson was an easy pick for the group of voters and fellow basketball coach Pat Riley is being inducted.

As for contributors, it’s been a slow process to get people in, but the group was able to agree on these three key people with ease. Howard Cosell, the standard of sports journalism, Lamar Hunt, who has had his hand in the success and growth of just about every sport there is, and Glenn Scobey ‘Pop’ Warner, one of the early innovators of football and creator of the popular youth football league today.

Corey Johns

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
