Former LSU safety Johnny Robinson and center Kevin Mawae were both elected to Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night. Per

The pair became the fourth and fifth LSU players to earn the prestigious honor, joining fullback Jim Taylor (1976), quarterback Y.A. Tittle (1971) and halfback Steve Van Buren (1965). LSU ranks second in the Southeastern Conference with five players in the hall of fame. Only one other school has more than three.

Tight end Tony Gonzalez, defensive backs Champ Bailey and Ty Law, and contributor inductees Pat Bowlen and Gil Brandt comprised the rest of the eight-man class selected by a 48-person committee on Saturday.

The Class of 2019 will be formally enshrined in Canton on Aug. 3, 2019. Read more.

So glad for Johnny and Kevin. Both have had stellar lives and are great ambassadors for LSU. Robinson especially since his dad the great Dub Robinson taught me at LSU in the early ‘80s. Plus as I was falling in love with LSU football in the 60’s I started watching pro football and I kept an eye on LSU guys like Cannon, Stovall, Taylor, Winston and Robinson. Robinson long deserved his place in the HOF
