Former Gator Danny Wuerffel to be honored at Sept. 21 Tennessee game
Former Florida quarterback Danny Wuerffel will be at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for the Sept. 21 game vs. Tennessee, being honored for his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame.
Wuerffel will be participating in the NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute program, a tradition that began with the inaugural class in 1951. During the NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salutes, each inductee returns to his alma mater to accept a Hall of Fame plaque that will remain on permanent display at the institution. The events take place on the field during a home game.
This year’s Division 1A Hall of Fame Class will be inducted Dec. 10 at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City. The class includes: Ted Brown (North Carolina State), Teddy Bruschi (Arizona), Ron Dayne (Wisconsin), Tommie Frazier (Nebraska), Jerry Gray (Texas), Steve Meilinger (Kentucky), Orlando Pace (Ohio State), the late Rod Shoate (Oklahoma), Percy Snow (Michigan State), Vinny Testaverde (Miami, Fla.), Don Trull (Baylor), Danny Wuerffel (Florida), and coaches Wayne Hardin (Navy, Temple) and Bill McCartney (Colorado).
