Truman Athletics Hall of Fame Grows By Five

Last fall, Truman Athletics inducted Roy Neff (baseball), Pete Kendall (tennis), Quinn Ross (men’s soccer) and announcers Brad Boyer and Hank Janssen into the Hall of Fame.

Neff was a pitcher for the Bulldogs in the early 1900s and a key component of the 1916 state championship team.

Kendall coached the Bulldog tennis teams for 20 years (1992-2012). He won 476 dual matches and made 13 NCAA tournament appearances.

Ross was the second All-American for the Bulldog soccer program and earned the award twice in his career. He broke or tied 12 school records as a member of the team and was the first player to play professionally after graduation.

Boyer and Janssen have been on the call for Truman football and basketball games for more than 20 years on 104.7 FM KRES. They are familiar voices of the Bulldog nation and have earned countless awards from the Missouri Broadcasters Association. Boyer has been a part of the broadcast since 1994 while Janssen has been covering the Bulldogs since the mid ’70s.
