Dallas, Tex. - Bishop College alum and president of the Bishop College Alumni Association, Bobby Moten, was inducted into the Texas Black Sports Hall of Fame (TBSPHOF) class of 2012 on Saturday. Moten joined a highly distinguished group, which includes "two multiple Super Bowl champions, a Heisman Trophy winner, and a former 'Fastest Man in the World'", according to the TBSHOF.
