The National Football Foundation has announced the 2020 College Football Hall of Fame class and I am so excited about it! The 17 First Team All-America players and two standout coaches in the 2020 Class were selected from the national ballot of 76 players and five coaches from the Football Bowl Subdivision, the 101 players and 33 coaches from the divisional ranks and the NFF Veterans Committee candidates.
The 2020 College Football Hall of Fame Class Presented by ETT will be officially inducted during the 63rd NFF Annual Awards Dinner on December 8 at the New York Hilton Midtown. The inductees will also be recognized at their respective collegiate institutions with NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salutes, presented by Fidelity Investments, during the fall. Their accomplishments will be forever immortalized at the Chick-Fil-A College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.

It’s so amazing to see that Keith Byars, Eric Dickerson, Glenn Dorsey, David Pollack & Michael Westbrook are on this list. Most importantly to see Steve McNair on this list makes my heart sing. I really hope that Alcorn State University shines during this special recognition and that his family is able to enjoy this moment. In my opinion, it’s well overdue for Steve to be in the CFB Hall of Fame.
Congratulations to the 2020 College Football Hall of Fame class!
