Tim Dwight Inducted Into SB Nation College Football Hall Of Fame


Former Atlanta Falcon Tim Dwight used his blazing speed to make a name for himself in the NFL, but before he was running past defenders on Sunday, he was doing it on Saturdays at Iowa.

His success as a kick returner earned him the special teams spot in the inaugural class of the SB Nation College Football Hall of Fame.

He set Big Ten career records for punt return yardage (1102) and touchdowns (5), which stood for several years. But stats and records only tell part of the story with Dwight -- they don't come close to capturing the feeling of watching Dwight on the football field.

He was drafted by the Falcons in the fourth round of the 1998 draft and played there for three seasons.
