On Thursday evening, the University of North Carolina inducted eleven sports figures into the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame. The event took place at the Raleigh Convention Center.
Included in the 2013 Hall of Fame Class was Tarboro, NC native and former Redskins Running Back Kelvin Bryant (1986-1990).
According to WRAL.com, the local Raleigh, NC news station, Bryant was the “top all-time running back at UNC-Chapel Hill [and] was named the United States Football League Player of the Year in 1983 and MVP in the championship game.”
In 46 career games with the Redskins, Bryant amassed 1,186 rushing yards on 260 attempts with six touchdowns and added 154 receptions for 1,634 and 14 touchdowns.
You can see him pictured above scoring the first touchdown in the team’s 1986 NFC Wild Card Game victory over the Los Angeles Rams.
From Redskins Fans everywhere, congrats Kelvin on your accomplishment!
