Posted May 22, 2014

Just the latest of many honors for Roaf

The accolades just keep on coming for former New Orleans Saints great Willie Roaf.

The latest: on Thursday he was named to the 2014 class of inductees for the College Football Hall of Fame. Roaf, who played with the Saints from 1993-2001, will be going in with one of his former teamates, tight end Wesley Walls.

Roaf, who was one of three charter inductees into the Saints Ring of Honor last season, is also a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame (class of 2012). But this latest honor is for his outstanding play as an offensive lineman at Louisiana Tech (1990-92). Walls, who played with the Saints in 1994-95, is being honored for his outstanding play at Ole Miss (1985-88).

Other members of the 2014 class: Dre Bly, North Carolina; Tony Boselli, USC; Dave Butz, Purdue; Shane Conlan, Penn State; Joe Hamilton, Georgia Tech; John Huard, Maine; Darrin Nelson, Stanford; John Sciarra, UCLA; Sterling Sharpe, South Carolina; Leonard Smith, McNeese State; Derrick Thomas, Alabama; LaDainian Tomlinson, TCU and former Oregon coach Mike Bellotti and former Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore.
