Pittsburgh -- The 19th class of inductees into the Robert Morris University Athletic Hall of Fame is comprised of four former student-athletes and one coach, each of whom left an indelible mark on their respective programs. They are Sam Dorsett (football; 1999-2003), Jarrett Durham (men's basketball coach; 1984-96), Sheri Horvath (women's basketball; 1994-97), Chris Hultquist (men's soccer; 1992-95) and Perry Johnson (men's basketball; 1967-69).
