Former Washington stars Lincoln Kennedy and Greg Lewis have been nominated for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame, the National Football Foundation announced Thursday.

Kennedy, an offensive tackle from 1989-92, was a member of UW’s 1991 national championship team and the only Pac-10 player in 1992 to be named a unanimous All-American. He was part of three consecutive Pac-10 titles and three Rose Bowl berths, and twice won the Morris Trophy as conference’s best offensive lineman. He was inducted into the UW Hall of Fame in 2004.

Lewis has been nominated for the third straight year.

In 1990, Lewis was a firt-team All-American and the first Doak Walker award winner. That year he was also named the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year after leading Huskies to the conference title.

In all, 75 players and six coaches have been nominated for this class from the FBS level. Ballots were mailed this week to the more than 12,000 NFF members and current Hall of Famers. The Hall of Fame class will be announced in May.
