on June 04, 2018 2:18 PM

First-team All-Americans Bobby Engram, Jeff Hartings and Steve Wisniewski have been selected as a part of the national ballot for the National Football Foundation’s College Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019. A total of 76 players and six coaches from FBS are on the 2019 ballot.

The trio of standouts who were instrumental in helping Penn State post undefeated and championship seasons have an opportunity to join 19 former Nittany Lion players and five Penn State coaches who have been inducted into the Hall. Engram and Hartings are appearing on the ballot for the first time.

Also on the Hall of Fame ballot is former Nittany Lion student-athlete Glenn Killinger, who is among the candidates for the divisional coach Class of 2019. Killinger was inducted into the Hall of Fame as a player in 1966.

Quarterback Kerry Collins will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in December, joining the likes of Shane Conlan, Curt Warner and Lydell Mitchell.

The announcement of the 2019 Class will be made Monday, Jan. 7, 2019, in Santa Clara, California. The city is serving as the host for the CFP National Championship, which will be played later that day at Levi’s Stadium.
