Former Minnesota Vikings players Bernard Berrian, E.J. Henderson, and Steve Hutchinson are among those included on the 2019 College Football Hall of Fame ballot.
To be enshrined into a Hall of Fame is normally a pretty impressive honor. An induction into the College Football Hall of Fame may be in the near future for three former Minnesota Vikings players.
Included on this year’s ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame class of 2019 are former Vikings wide receiver Bernard Berrian, linebacker E.J. Henderson, and guard Steve Hutchinson. This is the first time any of these three players have appeared on the ballot.
Before joining Minnesota in 2008, Berrian spent his college days at Fresno State. He played five seasons at the school and was named a First-Team All-American in 2001 as a kick returner.
Prior to Stefon Diggs joining the Vikings, Henderson was the best player Minnesota ever drafted out of the University of Maryland. The linebacker was a two-time First-Team All-American at the school and he was named the ACC Player of the year in 2001.
Hutchinson was never able to reach championship glory in the NFL like he did during his time at the University of Michigan. After helping the school win a National Championship in 1997, the talented offensive lineman went on to be named First-Team All-American in 2000.
If any of the three are selected for the 2019 class, they will join a group of former Vikings in the College Football Hall of Fame that includes Alan Page, Darrin Nelson, Tommy Kramer, Ahmad Rashad, John Randle, Carl Eller, Randall McDaniel, and Fran Tarkenton among others.
