Baylor QB Don Trull inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame

Don Trull, Baylor's original All-American QB and Sammy Baugh Trophy winner, was finally chosen for the College Football Hall of Fame today as part of the 2013 class. Other notable names include Tommie Frazier, Ron Dayne, and Orlando Pace, among many others.

That's a chin you can set your watch to.

The final list of this year's inductees is complete over on the mothership, where you can also now discuss the biggest snubs in the comment section. Trull joins his former WR Lawrence Elkins as Baylor's 10th member of the hallowed Hall. I'm sure Robert Griffin III will join him some day as our second QB.

Trull's stats don't pop out as all that impressive, I know, but you have to remember this was the early 1960s. In both of the last two years represented, Trull won the Sammy Baugh Trophy as the best QB in the country. In 1963, he actually finished fourth in the Heisman voting, losing to Navy QB and American hero Roger Staubach. It was a completely different offensive time.

Congratulations, Mr. Trull! I'm sure Baylor will put out a release shortly, and when they do, I will link it.
