Former UW RB Greg Lewis on 2013 College Football Hall of Fame Ballot

For the second consecutive year, former UW running back Greg Lewis is on the ballot for the 2013 College Football Hall of Fame.

Here is the complete list of 77 nominees. Lewis was an automatic holdover from the list of those who were on the ballot in 2012 but not elected. The announcement of those selected for this year’s class will be made May 7 with induction next December.

Lewis turned in one of the best seasons ever for a UW running back as a senior in 1990 with 1,407 yards on 248 carries as the Huskies won the Pac-10 title and Rose Bowl and finished 10-2.

Lewis won the Doak Walker Award that year as the best running back in the nation (pictured above with the trophy) and finished seventh in the voting for the Heisman Trophy. He finished his career with 2,903 yards, which is now fourth in school history behind Napoleon Kaufman (4,106), Chris Polk (4,049) and Joe Steele (3,168).

UW has 11 players and four coaches in the College Football Hall of Fame.

The players are: HB George Wilson, HB Chuck Carroll, T Paul Schwegler, T Vic Markov, HB Hugh McElhenny, QB Don Heinrich, QB Bob Schloredt, G Rick Redman, DB Don Coryell (who was voted in primarily for his coaching at San Diego State but played at UW), and DT Steve Emtman.

The coaches are: Gil Dobie, James Phelan, Darrell Royal and Don James.
