On Tuesday, Missouri announced that six former athletes have been chosen for induction into the Mizzou Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame.
The class of 2015 will be honored formally on Feb. 25 at Memorial Stadium in Columbia. One of the honored members includes former football standout Danario Alexander.
Throughout his injury-riddled career at Mizzou, Alexander managed to put up some gaudy numbers. He became a First-Team All-American with an exceptional senior season in 2009. Alexander led the nation with 1,781 receiving yards and 113 receptions. He also hauled in 14 touchdown passes. All three marks broke preexisting Missouri records.

I am truly honored to be inducted into the Mizzou Sports Hall of Fame. If you know my story, then you know that I had to fight hard for everything that I've accomplished. Thanks to everyone who helped me throughout this journey, the cheers, the phone calls, the words of wisdom, coaching and encouragement are all deeply appreciated. The sweetest victories are the ones you fight the hardest for. #MIZ #HOF
