Monk on ballot for College Hall of Fame

Syracuse great Art Monk is one of 76 players on the ballot for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame, the National Football Foundation announced Tuesday.

Monk was a first team All-American in 1979, and still holds the Syracuse record with 14 receptions in a game. He ranks fourth on school’s career all-purpose yards list with 3,899 (1,150 rushing and 1,644 receiving). Monk was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2008.

To be eligible for the ballot, players must have made an All-America first team, as recognized by the NCAA for their consensus All-America teams; played their last year of college football at least 10 years ago; played within the last 50 years; and out of professional football.

Monk is the only Big East player among those on the ballot. The Hall of Fame class will be announced May 15 and inducted at the NFF annual awards dinner on Dec. 4.

Here is the full list of everybody on the ballot. There are plenty of college football greats on the list, including Ty Detmer, Eric Dickerson, Tommie Frazier, Eric Crouch, Vinny Testaverde and Danny Wuerffel.
