JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- The Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame will induct a seven-member class in 2014, including former NFL standouts Deuce McAllister and the late Steve McNair.

The group, which was announced on Monday, also includes women's basketball standout Ruthie Bolton, Ole Miss and NFL standout Doug Cunningham, award-winning broadcaster Robin Roberts, track star Calvin Smith and former Mississippi State basketball coach Richard Williams.

McAllister played at Ole Miss before becoming the New Orleans Saints' all-time leading rusher with 6,096 yards and 49 touchdowns. McNair, who died in 2009, played at Alcorn State before a 13-year NFL career with the Tennessee Titans. He threw for more than 30,000 career yards and was the NFL's MVP in 2003.

The class will be officially inducted in July during a banquet at the Jackson Hilton.
