Pat Swilling inducted into College Hall of Fame

Link to story:

 

Former Georgia Tech defensive end Pat Swilling was named Thursday to the National Football Foundation’s 2009 College Football Hall of Fame induction class. The onetime Yellow Jackets star was honored along with 15 other former college standouts, including Tim Brown, Chris Spielman and Grant Wistrom.

Playing at Georgia Tech from 1982-1985, Swilling was part of the “Black Watch” defense that helped rebuild a struggling Yellow Jackets program grow into one that would claim a national title in 1990.

 

Selected in the third round of the 1985 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints, Swilling made it to five Pro Bowls before being named to the Saints’ own Hall of Fame in 2000. In just his fourth professional season, he was named Defensive Player of the Year after recording 17 sacks
