Yesterday, Athletic Director Debbie Yow announced the Inaugural Hall of Fame class for the NC State Hall of Fame. The inductees are:
I don’t have any real qualms with the first class. Obviously, some of the names were locks like Thompson, Case, Yow, and Brown. All inductees are deserving of being a part of this star studded initial class. It is an extremely solid class. The committee did an excellent job. Now, we hope the new College Football playoff committee will do as well.
Now that the first class is out, everyone will look forward to the second class. You should see names like Norm Sloan, Cullen Jones, Andrea Stinson, and Philip Rivers among others that will be the favorites to be enshrined.
The class will be celebrated at the 2012 NC State Athletics Hall of Fame Induction Banquet on Oct. 5 in Reynolds Coliseum.
