Ty Detmer won a Heisman Trophy, a Maxwell Award and two Davey O'Brien Awards during his illustrious career as BYU's record-setting quarterback, but he said the honor he received on Tuesday night was just as satisfying.
Detmer became the seventh BYU player or coach inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City, joining legendary coach LaVell Edwards, tight end Gordon Hudson and quarterbacks Gifford Nielsen, Marc Wilson, Steve Young and Jim McMahon.
"I'm definitely very proud to be here," Detmer said. "To me, there's nothing better than college football and all that goes along with it. … It is really representative of the team you played on and the coaches you played for. I'm proud to be representing that group."
