Fitzgerald was one of 19 players and three coaches that got named Monday. He and fellow legendary wide receiver Randy Moss highlighted the class.

In terms of coaches, former Michigan State and Cincinnati head coach Mark Dantonio highlighted it. His run from 2004-2019 will forever be remembered in the college football world.

The class will be officially inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame at the NFF Annual Awards Dinner on Dec. 10 in Las Vegas.

Fitzgerald’s Legendary Career

The former Cardinal dominated in his two college seasons with Pittsburgh. Fitzgerald totaled 161 receptions for 2677 receiving yards and 34 touchdowns in his 26 games played for the Panthers.

This dominance earned him runner-up in Heisman voting during the 2003 season behind Oklahoma QB Jason White. Fitzgerald did win the Biletnikoff or ‘Top Reciever’ award for the season.

It is without a doubt that the Minneapolis native is one of the greatest receivers in both NFL and college football history. He will next look to be named into the National Football League Hall of Fame for his incredible career in Arizona.
