      COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Former NFL defensive back Brian Dawkins, ex South Carolina shooting guard Zam Fredrick and Olympic gold medalist Monique Hennagan head up newest class of eight selected for the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame.

      Dawkins started three years at Clemson before playing 16 seasons with Philadelphia and Denver.

      Fredrick led the country with an average of 28.9 points a game in 1980-81.

      Hennagan won gold with the 1,600-meter U.S. relay team in Sydney in 2000 and in Athens four years later.

      Others named to the class announced Monday include ex-South Carolina State offensive lineman Edwin Bailey, former South Carolina pitcher Randy Martz, ex-Newberry basketball player Carl Short, former Clemson quarterback Rodney Williams and state golf leader and organizer Happ Lathrop.

      Induction ceremonies take place May 12.
