DETROIT, Mich. — (WXYZ) — The Michigan Sports Hall of Fame announced its eight-member class of 2022 on Thursday.

Detroit native and eight-time Pro Bowl tight end Antonio Gates will be inducted in the professional category. Also being honored at the ceremony will be 2020 inductee Chauncey Billups.

The 2022 class also includes former Michigan head coach John Beilein in the coaching category, Detroit Red Wings television analyst Mickey Redmond in the media category, and former Western Michigan athletic director Kathy Beauregard in the contributor category.
