College Football Hall of Fame

By  | 

Former Auburn defensive tackle Tracy Rocker has been chosen for the College Football Hall of Fame.

Rocker was the first player in the Southeastern Conference to win both the Outland Trophy and the Lombardi Award in the same season as a senior in 1988.

He also was a two-time All-American and three-time All-SEC selection.

The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame announced a 2004 class of 12 players and two coaches yesterday.

They will be inducted on December 7 in New York City.

Rocker, who is now an assistant coach at Arkansas, says the honor is a dream come true.

He'll be the 10th former Auburn player or coach in the Hall of Fame.

Rocker had 354 tackles including 48 stops behind the line of scrimmage during his career and led the nation's top-ranked defense with 100 tackles as a senior.

He played for three seasons in the NFL with the Washington Redskins.
