Brian Bosworth, Randy Hughes and Rod Shoate listed on Hall of Fame ballot
NORMAN — Former Oklahoma football players Brian Bosworth, Randy Hughes and Rod Shoate are among the 77 players listed on the 2013 College Football Hall of Fame ballot, released Tuesday by the National Football Foundation.
The Class of 2013 will be announced May 7, and inductions will be Dec. 10 at the 56th National Football Foundation Annual Awards Dinner.
To be eligible for the ballot, players must have been named a first-team All-American, played their last season of college football 10 years prior, played within the last 50 years and cannot be currently playing professional football.
Bosworth was a two-time consensus First Team All-America selection as a linebacker for the Sooners in 1985 and 1986, claiming the Butkus Award each of those seasons. He helped lead Oklahoma to three straight Orange Bowl appearances and the 1985 national championship. He was also tabbed as a GTE/CoSIDA Academic All-American in 1986. He led Oklahoma in tackles for three straight seasons from 1984-86.
Hughes served as a defensive back on Oklahoma’s 1974 national championship team and was part of squads that claimed three Big Eight titles. An All-America selection in 1974, Hughes was also named a National Football Foundation National Scholar-Athlete and a GTE/CoSIDA Academic All-American that season. He finished his career fourth in OU history with 14 interceptions.
