Talley Elected to the College Football Hall of Fame

Darryl Talley will never be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame as one of the former workhorses of the Bills, but he did get honored on Tuesday with election to the College Football Hall of Fame.

Darryl Talley was a mere 146 pounds when he arrived at West Virginia. But his lack of size was made up by an abundance of confidence.

“I was just one of those skinny, wiry kids who loved to play the game and loved to run and hit,” he said. “Everyone was bigger than me, but I just said, ‘Hey, it’s just football. I can play this game.’ ”

Not only could Talley play the game, he was one of the best in college football history. His stellar career earned a just reward Tuesday as he is one of 14 players and two coaches elected to the Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) College Football Hall of Fame.

The former Buffalo Bills great is part of a 2011 class that includes Florida State cornerback Deion Sanders, Ohio State running back Eddie George and former Bills fullback Bill “Earthquake” Enyart of Oregon State. Lloyd Carr of Michigan and Fisher DeBerry of Air Force are the coaching inductees.
