HEISMAN TROPHY winners Danny Wuerffel of Florida and Ron Dayne of Wisconsin, along with two-time national champion Tommie Frazier of Nebraska, were selected yesterday for the College Football Hall of Fame.
They are part of a class of 12 players and two coaches chosen by the National Football Foundation.
The rest of the players to be inducted in December are: Miami Heisman winner Vinny Testaverde, whose selection was announced Monday; Ted Brown of North Carolina State; Tedy Bruschi of Arizona; Jerry Gray of Texas; Steve Meilinger of Kentucky; Orlando Pace of Ohio State; Rod Shoate of Oklahoma; Percy Snow of Michigan State; and Don Trull of Baylor.
The new Hall of Fame coaches are Wayne Hardin, who led Navy and Temple, and Bill McCartney of Colorado.
Wuerffel won the Heisman in 1996, when he led the Gators to the national championship, throwing for 3,625 yards and 39 touchdowns.
"I'm thankful for what college football has meant in my life ... and how it allowed me to help other people," said Wuerffel, who finished with college career as one of the most prolific passers in major college football history with 10,875 and 114 touchdown passes.
