Tommie Frazier voted into the College Football Hall of Fame on Tuesday May 7, 2013.

Former Husker football star Tommie Frazier was announced as one of the twelve newest members of the 2013  National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame.  Other notable on the list include Florida QB Danny Wuerffel, Miami QB Vinny Testaverde, Arizona DL Tedy Bruschi and Wisconsin RB Ron Dayne.

“This is quite an honor,” Frazier said. “You never play the game and think you are going to be in the Hall of Fame one day. You just go out and try to be the best you can be and whatever happens, happens. I was fortunate that good things happened, but it certainly was not me alone. I had great teammates and coaches that played a big part in this honor.

“If we had not won all those games and two national championships, I wouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame. I was surrounded by great players at every position, and many of those guys had great careers themselves. I did have the role of being a coach on the field, but the guys around me made that much easier. With the supporting cast we had on offense, many times regardless of whether I had us in the right play or wrong play, they made it work.”

Frazier become the 16th Husker to be inducted.

Tommy Frazier highlight stats:

–33–3 record as starter

–2 National Championships

–4 Big Eight Conference championships

–MVP of the 1995 Orange Bowl and 1996 Fiesta Bowl.
