BY ROCK HOFFMAN


The College Football Hall of Fame and the National Football Foundation have announced the 2023 Hall of Fame class which consists of 18 players and four coaches.


"Each of these men has established himself among the absolute best to have ever played or coached the game,” said Archie Manning, NFF Chairman and a 1989 College Football Hall of Famer from Mississippi, “and we look forward to immortalizing their incredible accomplishments."
