From the “in case you missed it” files from Tuesday, the 2016 College Football Hall of Fame ballot was announced, and there is plenty of Pac-12 flavor.
Here is the list of conference players on the ballot in alphabetical order:
Steve Brown, Oregon State, linebacker
Mark Carrier, USC, defensive back
John Didion, Oregon State, center
David Fulcher, ASU, defensive back
Matt Leinart, USC, quarterback
Jess Lewis, Oregon State, defensive tackle
Ken Norton Jr., UCLA, linebacker
Herb Orvis, Colorado, defensive end
Ron Rivera, Cal, linebacker
Rashaan Salaam, Colorado, tailback
Dennis Thurman, USC, defensive back
Mike Utley, Washington State, offensive guard
Al Worley, Washington, defensive back
Darryl Rogers, Arizona State, (Coach, 1980-1984)
Leinart and Salaam, a pair of Heisman Trophy winners, headline the group. But there are certainly some very notable names on the list from both sides of the ball.
The 13 players and one coach listed above are part of 76 players and five coaches from the FBS level on the 2016 ballot. There are also 92 players and 27 coaches from the divisional ranks.
The AP has this piece on the players on the ballot, and you can see the complete bios of all of the players and coaches here.
Pretty much speechless... It is an honor to be on the ballot for next years College Football Hall of Fame class! When I got to USC I didn't even think I would play let alone be able to accomplish everything I was able to. None of this would have been possible without my family, the Trojan family, my coaches and my TEAMMATES...so THANK YOU!! #FightOn
