In New York City tonight, WWE star Ron Simmons (aka Farooq), FSU’s first two-time consensus All-American, was inducted into the College Hall of Fame. The former FSU defensive lineman became the sixth player or coach with FSU ties to receive college football’s most prestigious recognition. The official enshrinement takes place in the summer at the Hall of Fame facility in South Bend, Ind. Joining Simmons among the inductees tonight are Troy Aikman (UCLA), Wilber Marshall (Florida), Thurman Thomas (Oklahoma State) and coaches John Copper and Lou Holtz.
