Tippett, Sims elected to College Football Hall of Fame

Former Ohio State football player and assistant coach Rudy Hubbard is among the 13 people in the College Football Hall of Fame class

A member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame All-Decade Team for the 2010s, Sproles was also named to the San Diego Chargers' 50th Anniversary Team, was selected to K-State's Ring of Honor in 2015 and will be enshrined in the K-State Athletics Hall of Fame this fall. During that time, the Newark, New Jersey, native became a 1981 consensus All-American, a team captain, and a two-time All-Big Ten honoree. The ACC Player of the Year that season, Spiller set single-season conference and school records with 2,680 all-purpose yards. "I love the history behind the University of Iowa", Tippett said in 2017. He never had a losing season, coached 38 first-team All-Americans and went to a bowl game in each of his 18 years.

Over his NFL career, Tippett earned five Pro-Bowl invitations, won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award in 1985, and holds the Patriots' franchise record with 100.0 career sacks.

In 2007, Tippett was elected to the National Iowa Varsity Club Hall of Fame.

Heisman Trophy victor Carson Palmer and former Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops are among the 13 former players and coaches who make up the latest College Football Hall of Fame class.

Romo becomes the third player that played in the Ohio Valley Conference to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame joining Jim Youngblood from Tennessee Tech and George Floyd Jr., from Eastern Kentucky.


Former Florida A&M head coach Rudy Hubbard joined Stoops as the only coaches inducted this year.

Stoops, who led Oklahoma to 10 Big 12 championships and one national championship during his time with the Sooners, also has K-State ties.

Stoops played at Iowa for Hall of Fame coach Hayden Fry.

Stoops' time as an assistant at Iowa propelled him to his College Football Hall of Fame coaching career at the University of Oklahoma.

The College Football Hall of Fame Class of 2020 will also be inducted December 7 as the 2020 enshrinement ceremony was canceled because of COVID-19. "We are beyond excited to announce the 2021 electees and look forward to making induction worth the wait for the 2020 class".
