Former Green Bay Packers receiving great Sterling Sharpe was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame on Thursday, highlighting a class of 14 players.
Sharpe held several receiving records when he left South Carolina after the 1987 season. He went on to become one of the top receivers in the history of the Green Bay Packers.
Sharpe ranks second in career receptions as a Packer with 595. He’s 3rd in yards at 8,134, but set those numbers in just seven seasons. Donald Driver is the all-time leader in receptions (743) and yards (10,137), but he took 14 years to put up those numbers.
Joining Sharpe in the class of 2014 are such stars as LaDainian Tomlinson, Tony Boselli and the late Derrick Thomas.
