The 2015 M-Club Hall of Fame Class features some of the biggest names in Northwest Missouri State football history.

Former quarterback Josh Lamberson, former running back Xavier Omon and the late Scott Bostwick are among the five athletes, two teams and one coach to get the call from the Bearcats' hall of fame.

Lamberson played for Northwest from 2002-2005, and set the record for completions in a season (324) as he led the 'Cats to a national championship appearance in 2005. That season was the program's first of five straight trips to the title game. 

Lamberson was a graduate assistant for Northwest before moving on to Central Missouri where he served as offensive coordinator in four of his five years there. The Wilber, Nebraska native moved on to the University of Nebraska Kearney in December where he's taken over as the head football coach.

Omon set nearly every Bearcat football rushing record during his career (2003-2007), including rushing yards in a game (309 in 2007 vs. Chadron State), in a season (2,337 in 2007) and in a career (7,073). He also holds the all-time mark in rushing touchdowns in a game (five vs. Pittsburg State and Truman State in 2007), in a season (37 in 2007) and in a career (92).

Omon was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the sixth round of the 2008 draft. He also spent time with the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns.

Scott Bostwick joined the Northwest football program in 1994 when Mel Tjeerdsma began his tenure as head coach. Bostwick helped Tjeerdsma turn the program around as they earned 13 playoff appearances in 17 seasons, reached seven national championships and won three of them.

Bostwick was named head football coach after Tjeerdsma retired at the end of the 2010 season, but he died of a heart attack in June 2011.
