INSTITUTE, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia Athletic Coaches Association's Hall of Fame will induct two new members this month.

Bob Mullett, director of the North-South Football Classic, announced the selections of Steve Edwards Sr. and Steve Newberry on Tuesday.

Edwards is the former head football coach at George Washington High School. He led the Patriots to a 1982 state title, and the school's stadium is named in his honor.

Newberry is a former Peterstown High School multi-sport star and four-year starter for the West Virginia football team. He was elected to the university's Sports Hall of Fame in 2011.

Edwards and Newberry each participated in the North-South Football Classic as players and coaches. They will be honored June 21 at West Virginia State University.
