Tomlinson on the ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame

Posted by Jordan Beane on March 6, 2013 – 11:11 AM

With a bust in Canton on the horizon, former Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson is being recognized for his work on the collegiate level as one of the 84 finalists on the ballot for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame.

According to the AP “The ballot is distributed to the more than 12,000 NFF members and current Hall of Famers. The votes are tabulated and submitted to the 14-member NFF’s honors court, which selects the class.”

Before Tomlinson was breaking tackles and records in the NFL, he spent his time terrorizing WAC opponents as a running back at TCU.

In his four years as a horned frog, Tomlinson would gain 5,263 rushing yards, sixth all time in Division I history. He would also set the single game rushing record as he amassed 406 rushing yards against UTEP in 1999, a record that still stands today. During LT’s time at TCU he led a school that had been to two bowl games since 1966 to three during his four years. All of this would be the foundation behind the Chargers decision to draft Tomlinson number five overall in the 2001 draft.

Other players on the ballot include Tommie Frazier, Ron Dayne, Eric Dickerson and more.

The ballots will be collected and the inductees announced at a press conference on May 7th.

    The best all-around RB ever, and in my opinion the best football player Ive ever seen period. Nobody could carry a team the way he did in his first 7 years
