Albany State University quarterback coach Willie Totten will be inducted into the Black College Football Hall of Fame’s 2014 class. The will be his 8th Hall of Fame induction.
“To be recognized amongst your peers, I think is always great,” says Totten. “It’s always special to know that you’ve done something special among your peers.”
Known as the “Satellite”, Totten, playing with NFL legend Jerry Rice, set over 50 Division 1-AA records while while playing quarterback for the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils from 1981-1985.
“I have always been an avid fan of quarterbacks,” Totten says. “When I was a quarterback, I used to look at quarterbacks on TV and try to emulate them and try to do some of the things they’re doing. That’s what
I’m bringing here to the quarterbacking crew here.”
The 2014 class includes Totten, Robert Brazile (Jackson St.), Leroy Kelly (Morgan St.), John Stallworth (Alabama A&M), Michael Strahan (Texas Southern), Doug Wilkerson (North Carolina Central), and Marino Casem (Alabama St.).
The class will be officially inducted at a ceremony in March in Atlanta.
