COLUMBIA, Mo. – The 33rd induction class for the University of Missouri Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame, containing six former standout student-athletes and coaches, will be enshrined on Friday, Sept. 8, 2023, inside Jesse Auditorium.

The Mizzou Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame features 388 Tigers legends and was founded in 1990.

The 2023 inductees represent six sports and include Nick Adcock (track & field), Justin Gage (football), Drake Houdashelt (wrestling), Tim Jamieson (baseball), Karissa Schweizer (cross country/track & field) and Fabian Schwingenschlöegel (swimming & diving).

This year’s six-member class will be officially inducted on Friday, September 8, 2023, inside Jesse Auditorium on Mizzou’s campus. The awards ceremony is free and open to the public. 

The class will also be recognized on Saturday, September 9 at the Mizzou Football game against Middle Tennessee State. Game time and television network will be announced when available.

Nick Adcock – Track & Field

  • One of the best multi-event athletes in Missouri track and field history, Kansas City native Nick Adcock qualified for five NCAA Championships, and earned all-America honors at each one as a heptathlete/decathlete. Adcock won the Big 12 Conference championship in the 2008 and 2010 heptathlons and added a league title in the 2010 decathlon. Adcock left Mizzou holding the school record in the heptathlon (5,938 points) and the 60-meter hurdles (7.92 seconds) and stands third in program history in the decathlon (7,704 points).

Justin Gage – Football

  • Gage came to Mizzou from nearby Jefferson City as a touted quarterback and left as an accomplished two-sport athlete who went on to an eight-year NFL career. He switched to wide receiver as a sophomore in 2000 and was an honorable mention all-Big 12 choice after catching 44 passes. He emerged as the Tigers’ top target the next two years and was a first-team all-league honoree. He ended his football career holding MU records in both receptions (200) and receiving yards (2,704). He still ranks second in receiving yardage and third in catches. Gage – who also played three years of basketball – was named to the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in 2022.

Drake Houdashelt – Wrestling

  • Houdashelt tallied a thrilling 3-1 sudden-victory decision over No. 3 David Habat of Edinboro, March 21, 2015, at Scottrade Center in St. Louis, to become the fifth individual and sixth overall national champion in Missouri wrestling history. The O’Fallon, Missouri native left Mizzou as a four-time conference champion (2012 Big 12, 2013-2014-2015 Mid-American Conference), making him the first individual in Mizzou wrestling history to accomplish that feat. 

Tim Jamieson – Baseball

  • After six years as top assistant coach to Head Baseball Coach Gene McArtor, Jamieson succeeded his boss in 1995, and for the next 22 years developed some of the nation’s best pitchers, most notably future Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Max Scherzer. His career record of 698-565-2 is second only to McArtor’s 733-430-3 mark in school history. TJ took the Tigers to a Big Eight Conference championship in 1996, completing a worst-to-first turnaround – the first in Big Eight history – and in 2012 the Tigers won the Big 12 Conference Tournament title. He took nine teams to the NCAA Tournament, including seven straight appearances from 2003-09 and a Super Regional trip in 2006.

Karissa Schweizer – Cross Country/Track & Field

  • Schweizer ran her way to a Missouri career that may never be equaled from 2014-18. She won six individual national titles, the most by any Tiger athlete, and she earned all-America plaudits 10 times – tied for the Mizzou lead. The four-time SEC Champion won Missouri’s first NCAA cross country national championship in 2016 and followed that up with national titles on the track in the indoor 3,000 meters (2018), indoor 5,000 meters (2017 and 2018), and outdoor 5,000 meters (2017 and 2018). 

Fabian Schwingenschlögl – Swimming & Diving

  • In only two seasons at Missouri (2015-17) after transferring from Western Kentucky, Schwingenschlögl earned all-America swimming honors nine times and in 2016 won Mizzou’s first NCAA individual championship – in the 100-meter breaststroke. 

The Mizzou Athletics Hall of Fame’s constitution and bylaws express its purpose – “…to recognize and honor those individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the achievements and prestige of the University of Missouri in the field of athletics, and who have continued to demonstrate in their lives, the values imparted by intercollegiate athletics.”
