The Miami Hurricane Sports Hall of Fame has announced its Class of 2011 and Miami football legends Dan Morgan, Santana Moss, and Reggie Wayne are among those honored.
All three were members of the team that smoked the Florida Gators in the 2001 Sugar Bowl 37-20 after getting snubbed out of the National Championship in favor of Florida State, a team they beat during the season. All three were also first-round picks in the 2001 NFL Draft.
Morgan will go down forever as one of the greatest players in the history of college football. He won every award a defensive player could possibly win after his senior season, winning the Butkus, Nagurski, and Bednarik Awards as well as being named a Consensus First-team All-American.
He also has the Miami school and Big East conference records for career tackles with an amazing 532! He’s also a great guy and my interview with him can be seen here. He currently works for WQAM.
Moss was one of the most electric players in Canes history. The former walk-on graduated as the schools all-time leader in receiving yards (2,546), punt return yards (1,196), and all-purpose yards (4,394). When Moss had the ball in his hands, all eyes were locked. He currently plays for the Washington Redskins.
Wayne was a four-year starter at Miami and set a school record with 173 career catches. He set a freshman record with 48 receptions as well. Wayne has gone on to become one of the best Canes at the next level registering 10,034 yards and 66 touchdowns in his ongoing 10-year career with the Indianapolis Colts.
