College Football Hall Honors Art Monk

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 15, 2012 – 2:32 pm

(AP)

Art Monk, the Redskins’ legendary receiver and three-time Super Bowl champion, on Tuesday was named one of 14 players chosen to enter the National Football Foundation’s Football Bowl Subdivision Hall of Fame.

Monk was a standout receiver at Syracuse University from 1976 to 1979 until being drafted by the Redskins in the first round of the 1980 NFL Draft.

According to an NFF release, Monk — the ninth player from Syracuse to enter the College Football Hall of Fame — was a feared receiver and kick returner while in college. He currently ranks sixth in school history with 3,899 career all-purpose yards and was the last Syracuse player to lead the team in receiving for three consecutive seasons.

Monk was named a First Team All-American in 1979, and went on to an illustrious professional career with the Redskins, where he became the NFL’s all-time leader in receptions. He remains the Redskins’ all-time leader in career receptions (888), most career receiving yards (12,026), most receptions in a single game (13 against Detroit in 1990) and most receptions in a season (106, 1984).

Monk joins a 2012 Hall of Fame class of players and coaches that also includes:

  • – Charles Alexander, TB, LSU (1975-78)
  • – Otis Armstrong, HB, Purdue (1970-72)
  • – Steve Bartkowski, QB, California (1972-74)
  • – Hal Bedsole, SE, Southern California (1961-63)
  • – Dave Casper, TE, Notre Dame (1971-73)
  • – Ty Detmer, QB, BYU (1988-91)
  • – Tommy Kramer, QB, Rice (1973-76)
  • – Greg Myers, DB, Colorado State (1992-95)
  • – Jonathan Ogden, OT, UCLA (1992-95)
  • – Gabe Rivera, DT, Texas Tech (1979-92)
  • – Mark Simoneau, LB, Kansas State (1996-99)
  • – Scott Thomas, S, Air Force (1982-85)
  • – John Wooten, OG, Colorado (1956-58)
  • – Phillip Fulmer, coach, Tennessee (1992-2008)
  • – Jimmy Johnson, coach, Oklahoma State and Miami (Fla.) (1984-88)
  • – R.C. Slocum, coach, Texas A&M (1989-2002)

Monk is certainly no stranger to Hall of Fame speeches — he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2008. He’s also a community leader; Monk is the co-founder of the Good Samaritan Foundation and has worked with the Leukemia Society, I Have a Dream and Project Harvest.

Here’s a video of Monk’s Hall-of-Fame career with the Redskins:
