November 30, 2012

Former CSU All-American Greg Myers will be officially inducted into the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame during ceremonies Tuesday night at New York's historic Waldorf-Astoria.

Greg Myers, left, was joined by former CSU coach Sonny Lubick this fall when he was presented with a plaque commemorating his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame. Myers, a two-time All-American safety and the only four-time, first-team all-conference player in the history of the Western Athletic Conference, is just the second CSU graduate to be inducted into the national hall of fame, joining legendary Thurman “Fum” McGraw. Myers won the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation’s best defensive back and was the national Honda Scholar Athlete of the Year winner following his senior season in 1995.
