In October, former University of Colorado quarterback Darian Hagan learned that he would be inducted into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame as part of the 2014 class. The induction ceremony is April 17.

Fellow CU greats such as Alfred Williams, Mike Pritchard and Deon Figures are expected to attend.

Hagan came to Colorado in 1988. He quarterbacked the Buffs to their only national championship in 1990.

Hagan went 28-5-2 as a starter for the Buffs, including 20-0-1 in Big Eight Conference play. He finished his career with 3,801 passing yards and 2,007 rushing yards.

Hagan still serves as the Buffs’ Director of Player Development.

Hagan will go into the Hall of Fame with former CU basketball coach Forrest “Frosty” Cox, former Denver Broncos running back Otis Armstrong, former Colorado Rockies slugger Todd Helton, former Colorado College football and hockey great Andy Gambucci and former Denver Post columnist Dorothy Mauk.

The class will be honored at the 50th annual induction banquet at the Denver Marriott City Center.
