Philadelphia native Eddie George was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame on Tuesday night.
After starring at Abington High, George captured a Heisman Trophy at Ohio State in 1995. He rushed for 3,768 total yards and 44 touchdowns in his four seasons in Columbus. George eclipsed 1,400 yards in both his junior and senior years.
In his senior season, Ohio State went undefeated before losing in the final game of the regular season at Michigan to end their national championship hopes.
Following his senior year, George was drafted in the first round by the Houston Oilers and played nine seasons in the NFL. He helped guide Tennessee to Super Bowl XXIV.
Along with George, the Hall inducted 16 others. Highlighting the class were former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr, Flordia State defensive back Deion Sanders, and Georgia defensive back Jake Scott.
