The Ragin’ Cajuns announced their Class of 2014 inductees into the UL Athletic Hall of Fame Sunday.

Four ex-Cajuns have been tapped: Michael Allen (basketball), Steven Feehan (baseball), Jill Robertson (softball) and Matt Trevino (golf).

The four will be inducted during halftime of UL’s homecoming football game against South Alabama on Saturday at Cajun Field.

An autograph session will be held in the UL Alumni tent prior to the game, and a Hall of Fame reception and meet-and-greet will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday at the UL Alumni Center.

Allen was a three-year member of the basketball team from 1991 to 1994 and a two-time letterman. He earned first team All-Sun Belt Conference honors in 1993 and 1994, and in ’94 he became the first Cajun to be named Sun Belt Player of the Year.

Allen still ranks eighth in school history for career points with 1,673.

He played professionally, coached on the high school level and currently lives in Lexington, Kentucky, where he works as a Youth Service Center Coordinator for the Fayette County Public School System.

Feehan, a centerfielder, was a four-time baseball letterman from 1997-2000. He was named second-team All-Sun Belt Conference, All-Louisiana and honorable mention All-American in 1999, and in 2000 earned All-Sun Belt Conference honors and was named to the All-College World Series Team.

Feehan still tops UL record books in games played (236), games started (219), at-bats (809), runs scored (201) and hits (250).

He works for the Lafayette Fire Department.

Robertson won four letters from 2001-2005 and started in 242 games, helping the Cajuns to a 199-44 record. A career .296 hitter, she was a three-time All-Sun Belt first-team selection and 2001 Sun Belt Freshman of the Year.

As a senior, Robertson won NFCA All-Region honors while batting .366 with team-highs of 57 runs and 11 doubles.

She lives in Fort Worth, Texas, and works for Stryker Corporation.

Trevino lettered from 1995-98 and was a three-time All-Sun Belt selection. In 1996 he won the Louisiana State Amateur Championship, in 1997 he finished second in an NCAA Regional to qualify for the NCAA National Championships and in 2006 he was named to the All-Time Sun Belt Team.

Trevino’s wedge shot on the last hole at the ’97 Sun Belt Championships was instrumental in the Cajuns winning the league title.

He is Director of Golf at Riverhill Country Club in Kerrville, Texas.

The hall’s purpose is to recognize those athletes who’ve "made a significant contribution to the good name of the university by demonstrating exceptional ability and sportsmanship on the playing fields, commendable scholarship in the classroom, high quality leadership on the campus, and who after leaving the university have established a personal reputation for character and citizenship in the community which they reside."
