CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.---The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga athletics department will enshrine four new members into its Athletics Hall of Fame Saturday. Entering the Hall are basketball player Brandon Born, football player Pumpy Tudors, wrestler David Noblit and radio announcer Jim Reynolds.

Tudors (1989-91) was an All-America punter in 1990 and 1991. He owns the NCAA Division I-AA career record for career punting average at 44.4 yards per punt.
Noblit (1971-76) collected a 50-20 career record for the Mocs' wrestling team in the 118- and 126-pound weight classes. He was a two-time runner-up in the Southeastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association tournament. He has since organized the UTC Old-Timers Wrestling Club and has served as president of the UTC Alumni Council.
Reynolds, the play-by-play announcer for the football and men's basketball team, is broadcasting his 21st season of football and will begin his 22nd year of basketball Saturday.
Also being honored are UTC supporters Gary Davis and Bill Swartz.
