Monk, Ogden going to CFB Hall of Fame

Associated Press  |  Last updated May 15, 2012
Art Monk of Syracuse, Dave Casper of Notre Dame and Jonathan Ogden of UCLA are among 14 former players who have been selected to the College Football Hall of Fame. Former coaches Phillip Fulmer of Tennessee, Jimmy Johnson, who coached Miami and Oklahoma State, and R.C. Slocum of Texas A&M also were selected. It was announced Monday that Heisman Trophy winner and BYU star Ty Detmer was picked for the Hall of Fame. The other players who will be inducted by the National Football Foundation into the hall in December are: Running backs Charles Alexander of LSU and Otis Armstrong or Purdue; quarterbacks Steve Bartkowski of California and Tommy Kramer of Rice; defensive backs Scott Thomas of Air Force and Greg Myers of Colorado State; split end Hal Bedsole of Southern California; defensive end Gabe Rivera of Texas Tech; linebacker Mark Simoneau; and guard John Wooten of Colorado. Monk played receiver at Syracuse from 1976-79, leading the team in receiving three straight seasons. He is sixth in school history with 3,899 all-purpose yards. He went on to a long NFL career with the Redskins and New York Jets, catching 819 passes and making it to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2008. Casper lined up all over the field in his career at Notre Dame from 1971-73, though he became a star at tight end. He led the Fighting Irish to the 1973 national title and played 11 NFL seasons with the Raiders, Oilers and Vikings. He went into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2002. Ogden won the Outland Trophy was the nation's top lineman in 1995, his final season with the Bruins before being taken as the fourth overall pick in the 1996 NFL draft by the Ravens.
