Herschel Walker Inducted Into SB Nation College Football Hall Of Fame

Former Georgia Bulldogs star Herschel Walker was inducted into the SB Nation college football Hall of Fame, which seems more than appropriate considering in his late 40s, he's still in good enough shape to play at least a down or two for the 2012 team.

Dawg Sports has the synopsis on the significance of Walker's selection right here:

The Goal Line Stalker set 41 school, 16 conference, and eleven NCAA records, including a career rushing tally of 5,259 yards that remains to this day the most ever amassed by a college player in three seasons. Walker finished third in the Heisman Trophy balloting as a freshman, and second as a sophomore, before winning the award as a junior. A consensus All-American in each of his three years who went on to make his mark in several other sports after leaving school, Walker also was the epitome of class and the ultimate team player, whose individual achievements led directly to a 33-3 record, three straight SEC championships, and a national title.

Walker, who won with 64 percent of the vote in the poll, joins Ricky Williams of Texas, who was also chosen by the Hall's selection committee.
