Former CSU All-American Greg Myers will be honored during halftime at Saturday's Homecoming football game against Fresno State as the school's second player inductee into the National Football Foundation's College Hall of Fame.
Myers, who played safety and returned punts from 1992-95 and helped lead the Rams to their first Western Athletic Conference titles in 1994-95, will receive a plaque from NFF’s Will Rudd. The plaque will remain at CSU on permanent display at the McGraw Athletic Center, which is named for Thurman “Fum” McGraw, CSU’s only previous hall of famer.
Myers, along with 13 other players and three coaches, will be officially enshrined Dec. 4 during the NFF Annual Awards Dinner Banquet at New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
In addition to his appearance at Saturday’s game, Myers will be featured on a segment of the weekly Ram Report, where he will discuss winning the Jim Thorpe Award, given annually to the nation’s finest collegiate defensive back. Ram Report, which includes CSU football coach Jim McElwain and volleyball coach Tom Hilbert, airs at 9:30 p.m. Sunday on Denver’s KTVD, Ch. 20.
Fans can also catch a replay of the Ram Report during the week. CSU-TV (Comcast Ch. 11) will air the show at 7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, while NoCo5 offers the show at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Myers, who played five years in the NFL, is an anesthesiologist and assistant professor at Denver Health Medical Center. He and his wife, Kara, live with their two children in Morrison.
