When former TCU and San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson received the call last week letting him know he would be a member of the Class of 2014 inductees into the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame, his mind took him back to his high school career at Waco University High School.
The new Hall of Fame class announced Thursday by the National Football Foundation at a news conference in Dallas also included a couple of Heisman Trophy finalists and two of the best offensive linemen of the early 1990s.
The declaration lists for the NCAA West Preliminaries were announced Thursday, and the TCU track and field program has a total of 21 individual event entries and four relay teams for the meet May 29-31 in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
