WACO, Texas (AP) — New Orleans Saints quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees and 15-time NBA All-Star Shaquille O'Neal have been selected as part of the 2012 class for the Texas Sports Hall of Fame, hall officials announced Wednesday.

Former Cowboys running back Walt Garrison, Baseball Hall of Fame third baseman Eddie Mathews and Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams from Texas also are to be inducted Feb. 18. Also to be inducted are former University of Texas softball pitcher and two-time Olympian Catherine "Cat" Osterman and former Lubbock Monterey High School baseball coach Bobby Moegle.

The Hall of Fame said Wednesday that there is an eighth member of the 2012 class still to be announced.

O'Neal played high school basketball in San Antonio, while Brees and Mathews are Texas natives.

Brees is an Austin native who led Westlake to the Texas 5A Division II state championship in 1996. He threw for 3,528 yards during a 16-0 season before going on to become the Big Ten career passing leader at Purdue. The six-time Pro Bowler began his NFL career with five seasons in San Diego before going to New Orleans as a free agent in 2006. He helped lead the Saints to their first NFL title in 2010 and holds the NFL record for most consecutive games with a touchdown pass, an active streak of 54 games after breaking Johnny Unitas' half-century-old record of 47 in October.

Before being part of four NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2000-02 and Miami in 2006, O'Neal led San Antonio's Cole High to the Texas 3A state title in 1989.

Garrison, a Denton native, played nine NFL seasons (1966-74) for Tom Landry and the Dallas Cowboys. He was part of the 1971 Super Bowl championship team and retired with 3,886 career yards rushing and 1,794 yards receiving.

Texarkana, Texas, native Mathews spent 17 major league seasons playing for the Braves in Boston, Milwaukee and Atlanta (1952-66), Houston (1967) and Detroit (1967-68). The 12-time All-Star, a 1978 National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee, had a .271 career batting average with 2,315 hits and 512 home runs in 2,391 games.

Williams won the 1998 Heisman Trophy after a four-year stay with the Longhorns that included 21 NCAA and 46 school records. He ran for 6,279 yards in his career with 72 touchdowns and three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. He played in the NFL from 1999-2011 with New Orleans, Miami and Baltimore.

Moegle won 1,115 games and four state titles and was the state runner-up four other times at Lubbock Monterey in 1960-99. Only two high school coaches nationally have won more games.

Osterman won 136 games at Texas, where she was part of three teams that went to the NCAA softball World Series. She was the first NCAA pitcher with more than 2,000 strikeouts, and finished with 28 career shutouts, 20 no-hitters and 10 perfect games. She played on the 2004 and 2008 Olympic teams.
