Sakic and Shanahan head new class for Colorado Sports Hall of Fame

DENVER (AP) - Former Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan and former Colorado Avalanche center Joe Sakic have been voted into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame, along with four other sports figures.

Shanahan spent 14 seasons with the Broncos and won back-to-back Super Bowl titles with John Elway as quarterback. Sakic announced his retirement in July after 20 seasons.

A selection committee also chose former University of Northern Colorado football coach Bob Blasi, Cherry Creek High School baseball coach Marc Johnson, former University of Colorado wrestler Dean Lahr and announcer Larry Zimmer for the Hall of Fame. Lahr won the 1963 and 1964 NCAA championship in the 177 pound class.

All six will be honored at an induction banquet April 20.
