Legendary Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor will be inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame.
Taylor is one of 10 members of the Class of 2015.
They will be formally introduced during halftime of Miami’s home game against Cincinnati this Saturday, before an induction banquet schedule to take place in April 2015.
The two-time Pro Bowler, of course, was drafted by the Redskins with the fifth-overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft after an extraordinary career at Miami.
Here’s more on Taylor’s collegiate career courtesy Hurricanesports.com:
Sean Taylor Football 2001-2003
A consensus First Team All American in 2003 and finalist for the Thorpe Award as the nation’s best safety, Sean was the 2003 BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year. That year, he tied the school record with 10 interceptions that he returned for 184 yards, the second-most yards in a season in school history. He ranks second in career interceptions returned for touchdowns (three), second in career interception return yards (306), and fifth in total interceptions (14). A member of the 2001 National Championship team, Taylor had interceptions in four consecutive games in 2003, the second-longest streak in Canes history. Sadly, Sean Taylor passed away in 2007 and will be inducted posthumously.
