EMMITT SMITH ENSHRINED IN COLLEGE HALL OF FAME
Former Gator running back Emmitt Smith was enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.Â A three-time Super Bowl champion with the Dallas Cowboys and the NFL's all-time leading rusher, Smith set 58 rushing records while at Florida. Many of them still stand today, including most rushing yards in a single season (1,599)Â and career rushing touchdowns (36).
In addition, Florida State head coach Bobby Bowden was enshrined along with former Heisman-winning quarterback Charlie Ward. The Hall changed the rules of eligibility so that Bowden could be enshrined while still an active head coach.
