Centre College to Induct Britt, Magnusson Into Athletics Hall of Fame

Centre College has announced the 2016 inductees into the Centre Athletics Hall of Fame.

Two former men's basketball players, Brian Britt and Reggie Magnusson, will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Here is an excerpt of a Centre press release:

Brian Britt '01 was a four-year letterwinner for Centre in both basketball and football. Britt is the most decorated return specialist in Centre football history, earning the SCAC Special Teams Player of the Year in 1999, 2000 and 2001 and All-America honors in 2001 as a senior. Britt's three punt return touchdowns in 2001 are a Centre single season record. Britt was selected to the SCAC 15th Anniversary team as a punt returner. As a basketball player, Britt was an All-SCAC performer as a senior in 2001. Britt was also a member of Centre's track and field team, earning All-SCAC honors in 1998 and helping set a record in the 4x100 relay in 2000 that still stands today.

Reggie Magnusson '06 lettered for three years for the Centre men's basketball team. A native of Reykjavik, Iceland, Magnusson was the SCAC Newcomer of the Year in 2004, All-SCAC in 2005 and was named the SCAC Player of the Year in 2006. Magnusson was a third team D-III News All-American in his senior campaign of 2006 and was the first All-American for Centre men's basketball since David Hicks in 1991, also the first Centre All-American recruited by head coach Greg Mason. Centre posted a 57-23 record in Magnusson's three years with the program, jump starting one of the greatest runs of winning in Centre history. Magnusson was the 23rd player in Centre history to record 1,000 career points, finishing his Centre tenure with 1,147 points in three years.
