NEW YORK (AP) - Gabe Rivera was maybe the greatest defensive lineman to play at Texas Tech.
They called him Senor Sack. He was an All-American in 1982 and was drafted by the Steelers in the first round in 1983.
He has trouble remembering his playing days now. A car accident during his rookie season left him in a wheelchair and robbed him of some of his memory.
The congratulations that came after he was elected to the College Hall of Fame helped bring back some of those faded memories.
Rivera was part of a class of 14 players and three coaches to be inducted into the Hall on Tuesday night at the National Football Foundation banquet in Manhattan.
Heisman Trophy winner Ty Detmer and former Miami coach Jimmy Johnson were also among the inductees.
