Michigan's Charles Woodson elected to College Football Hall of Fame

Michigan's Charles Woodson elected to College Football Hall of Fame

Aaron Taylor, the only Nebraska player to earn All-American status at two positions, was one of 10 players selected for the College Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2018 on Monday morning.

Prior to his retirement in 2015, Beamer was the winningest active coach in FBS history at the time of his retirement, having tallied an impressive career record of 238-121-2 at Virginia Tech.

The announcement was made Monday by the National Football Federation and the College Hall of Fame. He is the winningest coach in Virginia Tech history and has won 7 conference championships and 11 bowl games.

The rest of the group includes: Rice running back Trevor Cobb (1989-92), Penn State quarterback Kerry Collins (1991-94), Montana quarterback Dave Dickenson (1992-95), IL linebacker Dana Howard (1991-94), Temple running back Paul Palmer (1983-86), Georgia offensive tackle Matt Stinchcomb (1995-98), Nebraska offensive lineman Aaron Taylor (1994-97) and former Austin College and Northwest Missouri State coach Mel Tjeerdsma (1984-2010).

After a dominant career at the University of MI that saw him become the first primarily defensive player to win the Heisman Trophy, Woodson was selected fourth overall in the 1998 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders.

The man who elevated Virginia Tech's football program into the national spotlight, and led the Hokies to a record 23 consecutive bowl games, has been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.

Reed played safety for the Hurricanes and aided in the club winning the national championship in 2001.

Taylor led Nebraska to three undefeated seasons that ended in national championships.
