GREENVILLE, SC (AP) -
Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers and national championship coach Danny Ford were among the first eight people selected for the South Carolina Football Hall of Fame.
Rogers won the Heisman for South Carolina in 1980. Ford led Clemson to the national championship in 1981.
Also named Thursday were former Tigers coach Frank Howard and standout Banks McFadden and ex-NFL coach Sam Wyche who played at Furman. Linebacker Harry Carson and defensive back Donnie Shell from South Carolina State were picked as was Bulldogs' longtime coach Willie Jeffries.
The group will be inducted March 23 during the South Carolina College All Star Bowl. The hall is open to players and coaches from the state's football programs along with South Carolina natives who may have played or coached outside the state.
