Former Wildcat great Tedy Bruschi will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in July 2014.

To celebrate his selection to the College Football Hall of Fame, Tedy Bruschi will return to Tucson on Oct. 18-19. A reception and luncheon will be held at the Doubletree hotel on Oct. 18 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Bruschi, who is now employed as an ESPN football analyst, will be honored a day later before and during the UA-Utah football game at Arizona Stadium. The Southern Arizona Chapter of the College Football Hall of Fame is coordinating the Friday luncheon. Information: rick72@aol.com . Bruschi will formally be inducted into the Hall of Fame next July. …Arizona’s All-Pac-12 shortstop Kevin Newman , who led the Cape Cod League with a .375 batting average this summer, is ranked as the No. 21 overall prospect from that summer league. But Baseball America’s analysis says that Newman “lacks standout tools … has an average arm and range and doesn’t stick out.” That’s odd; all Newman does is hit (he batted .336 as an Arizona freshman) and make plays. … Santa Rita grad Anthony Sanders  completed his first season as a minor-league manager by taking the Grand Junction Rockies to the Pioneer League playoffs. Sanders, an all-city quarterback who became an outfielder for the Toronto Blue Jays and member of the USA’s 2000 Sydney Olympics gold medal baseball team, led the Pioneer League team to the first-half division title. They were eliminated in the playoffs Wednesday by Idaho Falls. … Sunnyside High grad Jovan Stevenson , an all-city running back who gained 229 yards at Oregon State in 2011, plays mostly on special teams for the Beavers this season. The fifth-year senior was suspended for the first half of OSU’s game at Utah on Saturday for a late-hit on a punt return last week against Hawaii. … Rincon/University grad Mark Morris  scored his first college soccer goal last week, in a UMass loss to Vermont. A sophomore, Morris has started 12 games at UMass and is majoring in mechanical engineering. … Grand Canyon basketball coach Dan Majerle  made a recruiting visit to Tucson on Friday, evaluating Cienega High junior Terrence Johnson , who has received strong recruiting interest from, among others, San Francisco, Weber State, Portland and Northern Colorado.
