Fritz Pollard (finally?) inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame

It took so long for them to do this?

Fritz Pollard was only:

The 1st Black to play in the Rose Bowl.

The 1st African-American to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.

The 1st Black to coach an NFL team.


And they couldn't recognize him while he was alive?

What an insular institution!!!

Shame on the Hall for taking so long!
