Charles Woodson Named To College Football Hall Of Fame Class Of 2018

Charles Woodson's accomplishments on the football field are practically second to none.

After a dominant career at the University of Michigan that saw him become the first primarily defensive player to win the Heisman Trophy, Woodson was selected fourth overall in the 1998 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders.

Over the next 18 years, "C. Wood" established himself as one of the premier defenders in the league, winning a Super Bowl, being named the AP Defensive Player of the Year in 2009, earning Pro Bowl honors nine times, as well as an All-Pro nod three times.

As wild as it sounds, Woodson's collegiate career was as impressive as his professional résumé, and Sunday it was announced that the former Michigan Wolverine had been named to the College Football Hall of Fame's class of 2018.

Woodson had the news of his induction broken to him live, on the air by ESPN coworker Samantha Ponder, and was then given a commemorative football by fellow Michigan alum Adam Schefter.

Woodson received congratulations from all around the football world, including one from former teammate Justin Tuck.

Woodson is eligible for entry in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2021.
