IRVING, Texas — University of Notre Dame football legends Bob Golic and Aaron Taylor have been named to the 2021 College Football Hall of Fame ballot by the National Football Foundation. The ballot was announced Tuesday, June 16 and includes 78 players from the Football Bowl Subdivision.
Golic & Taylor will look to join 47 previous Notre Dame players, along with six former coaches, enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame. The Fighting Irish have more College Football Hall of Fame inductees than any other school. The most recent selection was Raghib “Rocket” Ismail in 2019.
Golic was a unanimous first team All-American and finalist for the Lombardi Award, given to the nation’s best college football player regardless of position, in 1978. He ranks second all-time at Notre Dame with 479 career tackles, while his 26 total tackles against Michigan in 1978 remains tied for the school record.
Taylor was a consensus All-American in 1992 and a unanimous All-American in 1993. He took home the Lombardi Award in 1993 and was named the College Interior Lineman of the Year by the Touchdown Club of Columbus.
The announcement of the 2021 College Football Hall of Fame class will take place in early 2021, with the class officially inducted on Dec. 7, 2021. For more information, visit FootballFoundation.org.
