Three former Tennessee football players are on the ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame.
Former UT players Bobby Majors, Paul Naumoff and Jackie Walker are among the 77 players and five coaches up for the honor announced Tuesday. More than 12,000 National Football Foundation members received ballots this week.
The 2013 class will be announced on May 7.
Majors was unanimous first-team All-America in 1971 as a defensive back, leading the Vols to wins in the Sugar Bowl and the Liberty Bowl before his career was over.
Naumoff was an integral member of the 1966 squad, earning most valuable player honors from the team in addition to his All-America certification at linebacker.
Walker set NCAA record for career interceptions returned for a touchdown by a linebacker and was an All-American in 1970 and 1971.
This is Walker’s first time on the ballot. Former UT wide receiver Willie Gault was dropped from the ballot.
