Former Kansas City Chiefs QB Trent Green is headed to the Hall of Fame… The Indiana University Athletics Hall of Fame, that is. The school announced 18 new members will be a part of the 30th induction ceremony, with Green among six of the “contemporary” choices.
Check out the write-up from IU on Green’s credentials for the HOF.
A native of St. Louis who won football letters in 1990, 1991 and 1992, and was co-captain in 1992 … IU’s Most Valuable Player in 1992 … Was a member of three bowl teams while at IU, the Liberty Bowl, Peach Bowl, and Copper Bowl … Holds IU record with 2,627 passing yards in 1991 and ranks fourth on career list with 5,400 yards … Set total offense record in 1991 with 2,829 yards and is fourth on career list with 5,916 yards … Played quarterback in the NFL for 15 years.
Green and the rest of the class will be honored at a dinner on September 30 and then again the next day at Indiana’s game against Penn State.
Congratulations to a guy that is as deserving as you’ll find. He’s building a heck of a broadcasting career for himself, but I’ve constantly said that I would love to see him back on the sidelines as a part of the Chiefs coaching staff. He would bring a world of knowledge and saw it all during his playing career.
