Desmond Howard among 3 former Michigan football players up for College Football Hall of Fame
Former Heisman Trophy winner Desmond Howard is one of three former Michigan football players on this year's ballot for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame.
Howard led Michigan to three Big Ten titles and two Rose Bowl appearances, and won the Heisman Trophy in 1991. He led the nation in kickoff returns as a junior (27.5 ypr) and ranks third on Michigan's career touchdown-reception list (32).
Elliott, in his first year on the ballot, was a two-time all-Big Ten offensive tackle who earned consensus All-American honors in 1987.
Lytle finished third in the Heisman balloting in 1976, when he ran for 1,469 yards and was named Big Ten MVP. He helped the Wolverines win two conference titles.
