The College Football Hall of Fame class for 2012 will be announced on Tuesday May 15, at 11:30 a.m. ET. There are 76 candidates to be included in the class, and a few of those players have connections to the Atlanta area.
Included in the candidates is former Georgia Tech linebacker Marco Coleman who was a member of the team from 1988-91. Coleman played just three years for the Yellow Jackets, but he left campus tied for the school-record with 28 sacks.
Another former Georgia Tech player being considered is Joe Hamilton, who was there from 1996-1999. A quarterback for the Yellow Jackets, Hamilton finished runner-up to Ron Dayne in the 1999 Heisman Trophy voting.
The Georgia Bulldogs have a pair of former players being considered. Those two players are Matt Stinchcomb, who was an offensive tackle for Georgia from 1995-1999, and Scott Woerner, a defensive back for the Bulldogs from 1977-80.
