Former Buffalo Bills outside linebacker Darryl Talley has been named one of 16 new inductees into the College Football Hall of Fame. The 2011 class will be enshrined later this year.
"I think it’s a tremendous honor," said Talley of his impending enshrinement. "To have that feather in your cap is really a wonderful, wonderful thing to have. Think about how many guys play college football. How many kids have come to West Virginia? To be honored is something really special."
Talley was a star at West Virginia, where from 1979 to 1982 he accumulated 484 tackles, 28 tackles for loss, 19 sacks and five interceptions. His stellar career was good enough to make him the Bills' second-round pick (No. 39 overall) in the 1983 NFL Draft; it's fair to say that his latest collegiate honor trumps his draft status.
Talley is one of the most revered players in Bills franchise history (and not just because of his Spiderman sleeves), where over 12 years he made two Pro Bowls while accumulating 1,095 tackles, 38.5 sacks and 11 interceptions. We at Buffalo Rumblings extend our congratulations to Darryl - and you can do so, as well, where Talley is active on Twitter.
