Danny Everett was inducted to the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame this fall, and no Bruin was more deserving of the honor. Just take a peak at what Everett accomplished during his UCLA career:
-Six straight years ranked amongst the top-10 American (2nd, 1987-88; 3rd, 1989-92).
-Six straight years ranked amongst the top-10 sprinters in the world (all top-five finishes, highlighted by a No. 2 ranking in 1988, the year he won the Olympic silver medal in the 400m and the gold medal on the world record tying 4x400m relay).
-Two-time Olympian (1988, 1992)
-Sophomore and junior class 400m school record holder (remains ranked No. 2 in the 400m and No. 4 in the 200m on UCLA's all-time lists).
-Ran on the school record 4x100m relay and the 4x400m relay, which still claims the NCAA collegiate record and the only collegiate team to break the three-minute barrier.
-Everett was Pac-10 Champion in the 400m (1887-88), 4x100m (1987-88) and 4x400m (1987).
-He was also the NCAA Champion in the 400m (1988), and as a member of the 4x400m relay (1987-88).
-Everett completed his UCLA career as a seven-time NCAA All-American.
