Hall of Fame Class of 2001
Football (1992 to 1995)
Greg Myers remains one of the all-time greatest football players in school history and is the only Ram to have received a major national award. A graduate of Colorado's Windsor High School, Myers' 1995 Jim Thorpe Award, given to the nation's top defensive back, is the highest individual NCAA award received by any CSU football player. He is a five-time first team All-WAC player and two time first-team All-American and the third consensus All-American in school history. Myers not only helped lead CSU to consecutive WAC championships in 1994 and 1995, he also received academic All-American honors in 1994 and 1995 as well. He returned four punts for touchdowns during his career and is tied with Gary Glick and Bill Kishman with 14 career interceptions all-time.
Myers' success on the field is still one of the finest in school history, but coupled with his amazing success in the classroom places him in a category second-to-none in school history. He is the only Ram football player named to first-team All-America on the field and as an Academic All-American in two consecutive seasons. Drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 5th round of the 1996 draft, he spent four seasons in Cincinnati and one in Dallas before retiring from the NFL. Myers went back to school and is now an anesthesiologist in the Denver area. In 2012 he was inducted into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame and a month later was selected to the 2012 class of the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame. Myers and Fum McGraw are the only two former CSU football players in the college football hall of fame.
