MISSOULA -- Record-setting rushers Yohance Humphery and Dick Imer will be inducted into the University of Montana’s Grizzly Sports Hall of Fame this fall.

Humphery is the school’s all-time leading rusher with 4,070 career yards. He also holds UM’s single-season rushing record with 1,658 yards in 2001, the year the Grizzlies won their second national title. He also owns school records in average rushing yards a game (138.2 ypg in 2001) in a season.

Imer finished his career in 1954 as UM’s leader in career rushing yards and yards per carry. He had started his career at the University of Washington, injured a knee, and then transferred to UM.

Imer still holds several career and single-season records. He owns the school mark for average yards per carry at 8.17 (86 carries for 703 yards), which he set in 1953. He also holds the scored record for average all-purpose yards per game at 157.7 (1,737 yards in 16 games). He ranks 12th in career rushing yards with 1,592 in just 16 career games.

Humphery and Imer will be inducted into the hall of fame on Friday, Sept. 5. They will also be introduced at midfield the following day during the Grizzlies home opener versus Central Washington.
