New Haven, CT – The Walter Camp Football Foundation announced today, that two notable players in the history of college football will be the latest college greats to be inducted into The Foundation’s Ring of Honor, in ceremonies to be held in conjunction with The Foundation’s annual Ring of Honor Golf Classic June 12-14 in New Haven.
“The Ring of Honor recognizes former players, coaches and individuals who have played a significant role in the Walter Camp Football Foundation’s history and tradition”. The Walter Camp Football Foundation is thrilled to bestow this honor on two college football greats, Archie Griffin, Walter Camp All-American, Player of the Year (1974, 1975), 1993 Walter Camp Alumni Award winner and a member of the All-Time All-America Team from The Ohio State University and the University of Michigan’s Ty Law, 1994 Walter Camp All-American, longtime member of the New England Patriots, 3-time SuperBowl champ, and NFL Hall of Famer, said WCFF President Tony Mortali.
“The Mission of The Foundation is to preserve and promote the tradition of selecting a collegiate All-America Football Team as started by Walter Camp, “The Father of American Football,” in 1889, while also paying tribute to individuals who contribute to the great American game of football, perpetuate his ideals and support humanitarian programs and activities”. No two individuals are more fitting of this honor than Archie Griffin and Ty Law, Mortali continued.
Griffin and Law join previous Ring of Honor inductees: Herschel Walker, Tony Dorsett, Tim Brown, Cornelius Bennett, Hugh Green, and Tommie Frazier.
ESPN’s Chris Berman is expected to return as the event emcee.
Proceeds from the Ring of Honor Golf Classic support the WCFF’s philanthropic goals. The Foundation provides financial, and manpower support to worthy adult-oriented and youth-focused educational organizations, which have collectively become known as “The Walter Camp Charities.”
