The College Football Hall of Fame inducted their 2019 class on Tuesday night, and a pair with ties to the Seattle Seahawks – defensive end Jacob Green and coach Dennis Erickson – were among those honored.

Green is a Ring of Honor member of the Seahawks, having spent 11 of his 12 NFL seasons in Seattle. The two-time Pro Bowler was with the Seahawks from 1980-1991 after getting selected 10th overall out of Texas A&M.

Green becomes the 11th A&M Aggie to get inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, where he starred from 1977-1979.

“This is a universal award for my family, coaches and Texas A&M,” Green said of making the Hall. “I could have never done it without them. Aggies all over the country are excited for me—at least the ones I’ve talked to—which is pretty good.”

Erickson coached the Seahawks from 1995-1998, leading them to a 31-33 record. Three of his four seasons finished with an even 8-8 finish.

Erickson is being awarded thanks to his extensive career as a college head coach, which included stints at Idaho, Wyoming, Washington State, Miami, Oregon State, and Arizona State.
