11 former SEC players on 2014 College Football Hall of Fame Ballot

College Football Hall of Fame

The National Football Foundation released its list of College Football Hall of Fame candidates today. The list includes 75 players and six coaches, and 11 of the 75 were from former SEC schools, as well as two coaches.

“It’s an enormous honor to just be on the ballot when you think that more than 4.99 million people have played college football,” said NFF President & CEO Steven J. Hatchell. “The Hall’s requirement of being a First-Team All-American creates a much smaller pool of only 1,500 individuals who are even eligible to be on the ballot, so being in today’s elite group means an individual is truly among the greatest to ever have played the game, and we are proud to announce their names.”

The official class will be inducted in December, but announcements will be made in May.

Here are the 11 former SEC players, and you can view the entire list here:

  • Wes Chandler, WR, Florida
  • Tim Couch, QB, Kentucky
  • Paul Crane, C/LB, Alabama
  • Willie Gault, WR, Tennessee
  • Bobby Humphrey, RB, Alabama

  • Sterling Sharpe, WR, South Carolina
