4 Join Orange County Hall of Fame : Youngblood, Ann Meyers Head List of Feb. 16 Inductees

Jack Youngblood, a six-time All-Pro defensive end, and Ann Meyers, a four-time collegiate basketball All-American, are among the four newest members of the Orange County Hall of Fame.

Others to be inducted at the Hall of Fame's seventh annual banquet Feb. 16 at the Emerald Hotel in Anaheim are Harry M. (Cap) Sheue, a longtime Orange County high school football and track coach, and Pat McCormick, the winner of four Olympic gold medals.

Youngblood, 36, a defensive end for 14 years with the Rams, was elected in his first year on the ballot. A back injury during the 1984 season eventually forced him to retire during training camp in 1985. Youngblood, 36, now is a commentator on Rams' radio broadcasts.

After a successful basketball career at Sonora High School and UCLA, Meyers helped the United States win a silver medal in the 1976 Olympics at Montreal.

She joins her brother, David, also a former UCLA basketball player, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1983.

Sheue, 91, who arrived in Huntington Beach in 1925, coached track and football and was the school's athletic director before retiring in 1964. The school's athletic field was renamed Sheue Field in 1967.

McCormick is the only woman diver to win two gold medals in two Olympic Games. McCormick, a Seal Beach native, won two gold medals at Helsinki in 1952 and Melbourne in '56.
