Ragin’ Cajuns 2014 Athletic Hall of Fame Class Consists Of 4 Deserving Candidates
The University of Louisiana announced their 2014 Athletic Hall of Fame inductees today. The 4 members of the class won't come as a surprise to anyone who has followed the UL athletic program in the last 25 years.
Michael Allen (Basketball), Steven Feehan (Baseball), Jill Robertson (Softball) and Matt Trevino (Golf) will all officially be inducted into the Ragin' Cajun athletic Hall of Fame this Saturday at Cajun Field during halftime of the UL homecoming game against South Alabama.
This Friday, October 31rst, a meet-and-greet and Hall of Fame Reception will take place from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the UL Alumni Center.
All 4 members will also be signing autographs inside the Alumni tent prior to Saturday's homecoming game.
Allen spent 3 seasons with the USL Ragin' Cajun basketball team from 1991-1994, lettering twice, earning All Sun Belt Conference (SBC) honors in '93 and '94. His '94 season was arguably his best when he became the first basketball player in school history to be named Sun Belt Conference (SBC) player of the year.
His 1,673 points currently ranks 8th best in school history. It's an impressive number by itself, but even more impressive when considering he only played 3 seasons.
Following his collegiate career, Allen played professionally for several years before coaching high school basketball. He earned his degree from Louisiana in 1996 and currently serves as the Youth Service Center Coordinator for the Fayette County Public School System in Lexington, Kentucky.
Feehan played centerfield for the Ragin' Cajun basetball team from 1997-2000, lettering all 4 years. After earning second-team All SBC honors, second-team All-Louisiana honors, and honorable mention All-American honors his junior year, Feehan surpassed his accolades in his final season with UL, serving as a key member of the only Cajun baseball team to play in the College World Series. That season, Feehan earned first-team All SBC honors, honorable mention on the All-Louisiana team and was named to the All-College World Series team.
Feehan played in more games (236), started in more games (219), had more at bats (809), scored more runs (201) and collected more hits (250) than any baseball player in program history.
Robertson lettered 4 seasons with the Cajun softball team, playing from 2001-2005. Starting in 242 games, she helped her team boost a 199-44 record during her career. She made a major impact as soon as she stepped on the field, earning SBC Freshmen of the Year honors in 2001. She went on to be a three-time First-Team All SBC selection, finishing her career with a .296 batting average, 216 hits, 208 runs, 106 RBI and 50 stolen bases.
Robertson displayed a resiliency that is undeniable. After suffering a season-ending injury in 2004, she returned for a senior year, leading her team in runs (57) and doubles (11), all while batting an impressive .366.
A multi-time Conference honor roll recipient, Robertson was just as impressive in the classroom as she was on the softball diamond. Upon earning her Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from UL in 2005, she attended graduate school at the University of Houston, earning a Masters in biomedical engineering in 2008.
Robertson currently resides in Fort Worth, Texas, working for the Stryker Corporation.
Trevino was a three-time All SBC selection during his 4 years (1995-98) with the Ragin' Cajuns golf team, lettering all 4 seasons. His collegiate career with the Ragin' Cajun golf squad was full of notable accomplishments, including winning the 1996 Louisiana State Amateur Championship, a second place finish in the 1997 NCAA Regional Championships, and a 1997 Sun Belt Conference Championship.
He currently resides in Kerrville, Texas, serving as Director of Golf at Riverhill Country Club.
