Alain Chevrier '84: Chevrier was Miami's first hockey player to be selected to the Hall of Fame. He earned four letters under coach Steve Cady, refined his skills at Miami, before going on to a fine six-year career in the National Hockey League. During that time, he was the all-time leader at Miami in saves with 2,440, and his 3.40 goals against average (GAA) in 1980-81 which was the second best in Miami history. After playing with Ft. Wayne in the International League for a year, he signed with New Jersey in 1985, which jump-started his NHL career. Chevrier also had stops with Winnipeg, Pittsburgh, Detroit, and a most memorable stay with Chicago. In 1989, Chevrier helped lead the Blackhawks to the brink of the Stanley Cup Finals, when he won nine games in the playoffs and had a sparkling GAA of 2.61. His most recent tenure was a second tour of duty with New Jersey.
Chuck Goodyear '77: Chuck Goodyear was a key ingredient in Miami's basketball success from 1974-77, when the Redskins posted a four-year mark of 70-34 under Hall of Fame head coach Darrell Hedric. Goodyear, a 6-5 forward, is still the Redskins' 10th all-time leading scorer with 1,212 points. Goodyear was an outstanding shooter throughout his career, as indicated by his career field goal percentage of .511, hitting 497-973 in his four years, which at the time was the third-best mark in school history. His free throw percentage of .781 also ranked sixth on the all-time list. The Columbus, Ohio native was a first-team All-MAC selection after averaging 18.1 points his junior season and a second-team all-league pick as a senior after averaging 13.7 as he helped the Redskins win the MAC championship. Goodyear played with fellow Miami Hall of Famers Archie Aldridge, and 1991 inductees Randy Ayers and John Shoemaker.
Bill McCormick '50: William McCormick was a stellar 6-0, 190-pound offensive lineman, and played with some of the all-time legends in the hey-day of Miami football. He played for three different coaches (Sid Gillman, George Blackburn, and Woody Hayes), and was part of four Miami teams that compiled a 28-8-2 mark. A native of nearby Hamilton, McCormick was a cornerstone of the Redskins line that paved the way to a 9-0-1 season in 1947 and a Sun Bowl win over Texas Tech. Then in 1948, he was a key member of the MAC championship team that went 7-1-1. McCormick played with Miami Hall of Famers Ara Parseghian, Carmen Cozza, Paul Dietzel, Bo Schembechler, Doc Urich, Bill Hoover, Ernie Plank, and Wayne Gibson.
Randy Walker '76: The Troy, Ohio native played on three straight Mid-American Conference championship teams (1973-75) that posted an incredible mark of 32-1-1, and won three successive Tangerine Bowls. With 1,757 career yards rushing, Walker ranked 11th on the all-time Maim rushing list, and was also one of the all-time leaders at MU in kickoff returns and kick return yards during his time. Walker, an all-MAC performer, was selected Miami's Most Valuable Player in 1975, and played wingback, tailback, and fullback during his career. After being drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in 1976, he came back to Miami as an assistant under Dick Crum in 1977, and then followed Crum to North Carolina, where he spent 10 seasons. In 1988, Walker went to Northwestern for two years, before returning to the "Cradle of Coaches" in 1989 as the Redskin head coach. Walker's biggest thrill about being elected to the Hall of Fame is the chance to join his former teammates, Sherman Smith and Rob Carpenter in the elite group. That trio became one of the great backfields in all of college football that decade.
