ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany State University National Alumni Association inducted two more people into their sports hall of fame Friday night.

One of the inductees, Anthony Kelly is a 1990 graduate of ASU. He is currently on the football coaching staff. Kelly was a wide-receiver for the first ever SIAC Champion football team in 1984. Kelly says the induction came as a surprise. 

"Never really had any idea that someone would look at me as part for the Sports Hall of Fame. Because of the things I've done for Albany State. My dedication to Albany State all been because I love my institution," said Anthony Kelly.

The other inductee was Reverend Dr. Reginald Hunter.  In 1979 Hunter set and still holds the SIAC's 15-hundred meter record.
