Former Husker Aaron Taylor selected for 2018 College Football Hall of Fame

Former Husker and winner of the 1997 Outland Trophy Aaron Taylor was one of 13 individuals named to the 2018 College Football Hall of Fame class on Monday.

Taylor, an offensive guard from 1993-1997, is the 18th Nebraska player to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, and the first since Trev Alberts was inducted in 2015.

The 2018 class will officially inducted at the 61st National Football Foundation Annual Awards dinner on Dec. 4, 2018 in New York.

Taylor was one of Nebraska’s nation-leading nine Outland Trophy winners. He’s also the fourth of those nine winners to be selected for the Hall of Fame. Taylor was a staple on Nebraska’s offensive line, and helped the Huskers claim national titles in 1994, 1995 and 1997.

Taylor was a first team All-American selection in both his junior and senior seasons in ’96 and ’97. In Taylor’s four years, the Huskers were 49-2 and a perfect 30-0 record in conference play.

He was selected in the seventh round of the 1998 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts. Taylor had his No. 67 jersey retired by the Huskers that same year.
