College Hall of Fame ballot includes former Lion, Mike Utley

I remember November 17th, 1991 vividly. Not because it was my birthday, but because it was the day that Detroit Lions offensive guard Mike Utley was paralyzed from the chest down after a freak injury on the football field. 

Now, Utley is being listed on the College Football Hall of Fame ballot for the first time.

Prior to being drafted in 1989 by the Lions, Utley spent his college career playing for Washington State University where he was a star offensive lineman.

Other notable players making their first appearance on the ballot include, Kansas State’s Michael Bishop, Florida State stars Derrick Brooks and Terrell Buckley, Penn State’s Kerry Collins, Purdue’s Rod Woodson, Texas A&M’s Dat Nguyen, Michigan State’s Morten Andersen, USC’s Matt Leinart, and New Mexico’s Brian Urlacher.

Notable Holdovers from last year’s ballot include SMU’s Eric Dickerson, UNLV’s Randall Cunningham, Iowa State’s Troy Davis, Notre Dame’s Raghib Ismail, and the late Jerome Brown from Miami.
