Art Monk is getting the call from another Hall of Fame.
It was announced today that Monk is one of 14 players to be selected to the College Football Hall of Fame. He was a receiver at Syracuse from 1976-1979, leading the team in receiving three times. Monk is still sixth in school history with 3,899 all-purpose yards.
The legendary Redskins receiver, who retired as the leading receiver in NFL history, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2008, an honor that many believed that was long overdue.
Also selected were UCLA tackle Jonathan Ogend, tight end Dave Casper of Notre Dame, running backs Charles Alexander of LSU and Otis Armstrong or Purdue; quarterbacks Steve Bartkowski of California and Tommy Kramer of Rice; defensive backs Scott Thomas of Air Force and Greg Myers of Colorado State; split end Hal Bedsole of Southern California; defensive end Gabe Rivera of Texas Tech; linebacker Mark Simoneau; and guard John Wooten of Colorado.
Former coaches Phillip Fulmer of Tennessee, Jimmy Johnson, who coached Miami and Oklahoma State, and R.C. Slocum of Texas A&M also were selected.
