Fondly remembered as ‘the pirate,’ Washington State University football coach Mike Leach, whose accolades include the third-most victories in program history, is one of five individuals being inducted into the WSU Athletic Hall of Fame on Sept. 6–7.

He is joined by track & field’s Alissa Brooks-Johnson, soccer’s Micaela Castain, basketball’s Don Collins, and football student-athlete DeWayne Patterson.

“The 2024 WSU Athletic Hall of Fame class represents some of Washington State’s greatest student-athletes and coaches dating back more than four decades and we are honored to highlight the successes of such an incredible group,” said Director of Athletics Anne McCoy. “The accomplishments of this class are tremendous and the pride and passion each displayed while representing WSU is well documented. We look forward to celebrating their impact on our great history.”

The honorees will join the current 232 individuals and teams in the WSU Athletic Hall of Fame. The induction dinner will be held Friday, Sept. 6, at Beasley Coliseum with the 2024 class also being recognized at the Washington State-Texas Tech football game at Gesa Field the following evening.
