Former Notre Dame star Tim Brown heads a class of 24 players who will be enshrined into the College Football Hall of Fame today in South Bend, Ind.
Brown, the Heisman Trophy winner in 1987, was worried the enshrinement might not be held in South Bend after Hall officials announced last September the facility will move to Atlanta. But construction in Atlanta has not yet begun.
"I'm glad they got me in this year so I can be back in South Bend," the former Raiders star.
Others being honored include quarterback Gino Torretta (Pinole Valley High/Miami), who won the Heisman in 1992; receiver Ken Margerum (Stanford); linebacker Chris Spielman (Ohio State); and coach John Robinson (USC and UNLV).
