Former Washington Redskin and Purdue Boilermaker Dave Butz on Tuesday was named to the College Football Hall of Fame.

During a press conference in New York City, the 6-foot-7 Butz was taken aback by the honor, admitting there was a moment where couldn’t breathe due to his excitement.

“When I got told that I made the team, I think I stopped breathing for a while. What an honor,” Butz said Tuesday.

Butz — who is one of the 80 Greatest Redskins — dominated the competition at times while at Purdue, as he was named an All-American several times during his three seasons as a starter.

During the 1972 season, Butz was named a Playboy All-American, Walter Camp All-American, Kodak All-American and Coaches All-American.

He was also the 1972 winner of the Zipp Award — given to college football’s outstanding player — and was a finalist for the Lombardi Award.

Butz was inducted into The Purdue University Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame 2005.
