Former Tennessee Titans running back Eddie George will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.

George was revealed as one member of the 2011 induction class Monday afternoon on ESPN. The entire class will be announced 10:30 a.m. (CDT) Tuesday in New York.

George was the 1995 Heisman Trophy winner while at Ohio State. As a senior, he led the nation in scoring and set a school record with 1,927 rushing yards, which raised his career total to 3,768. He also set school records with five games of 200 rushing yards or more and 12 consecutive 100-yard games.

In addition to the Heisman, George won the Maxwell Award, Walter Camp Player of the Year Award, Doak Walker Award and Jim Brown Award before he was selected 14th overall by the then-Houston Oilers.

George holds virtually every career Titans’ rushing record and ranks among the NFL’s top 25 in all-time career rushing yards with 10,441.

The 2011 College Football Hall of Fame Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) Class will be inducted at the NFF Annual Awards Dinner on Dec. 6, 2011, at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City. Members of the class will be officially enshrined at the College Football Hall of Fame, tentatively scheduled for the summer of 2012.

Congratulations Eddy: Let me simply be yet another fan to tell you how much I appreciate your personal example of gentlemanly conduct as a citizen/athlete. And thanks for doing it in Nashville.
P.S. Will we see Mrs George again on Survivor?
