The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame held its 2014 ceremonies on Saturday in Nashville and several members of the UT athletics community were recognized. 

Former Vols baseball star and football player Todd Helton was named The Tennessean of the Year

The former Colorado Rockies first baseman retired last year after 17 years in the major leagues. The Knoxville native played football and baseball at the University of Tennessee before being drafted by the Rockies.

"To be honored as Tennessean of the Year is fabulous. I'm humbled," Helton said. "To see some of the names like Pat Head Summitt, Coach (Phillip) Fulmer and to just walk in some of the same shoes they've walked in just amazing."

Former Tennessee football star and Paul Naumoff was inducted into the Hall as was former Lady Vols basketball standout Bridgette Gordon. 

Softball pitcher Ivy Renfroe was honored as the Amateur Female Athlete of the Year.
