Other notable honorees include National Football League standouts Calvin Johnson (Georgia Tech), Ed Reed (Miami) and Heisman Trophy victor Charles Woodson (Michigan).

One of the best football players to ever come out of Wichita Falls is headed to the College Football Hall of Fame.

The other members are Trevor Cobb (Rice), Kerry Collins (Penn State), Dave Dickenson (Montana), Dana Howard (Illinois), Paul Palmer (Temple), Matt Stinchcomb (Georgia), Aaron Taylor (Nebraska), and former coach Mel Tjeerdsma (Austin College and Northwestern Missouri State). The Hall of Fame itself is in Atlanta, where Beamer will participate in the coin toss before the College Football Playoff national championship game tonight between Alabama and Georgia.

Beamer was 238-121-1 at Tech, winning three Big East Conference and four ACC championships. Beamer's 280 career victories rank 6th in FBS history and are the 13th most by a college football coach at any NCAA division.
