Two former legends in Lubbock have made their mark enough for the College Football Hall of Fame ballot! Michael Crabtree and Graham Harrell will be on the Ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame this upcoming year!
Both players made their marks in Lubbock by dominating in their seasons as Red Raiders. They were both influential in the 2008 upset against then No. 1 Texas with Harrell throwing the ball to Crabtree that ultimately scored the game-winning touchdown.
Harrell finished his Texas Tech Career with over 15,000 passing yards, 134 touchdowns, and 1403 completions in three and a half seasons as Texas Tech’s quarterback. He went on to a short NFL before going into coaching where he is currently the Offensive Coordinator at USC. Many people predict him coaching in Lubbock one day.
Crabtree dominated in his two seasons as a Red Raider, catching 231 passes, and scoring 41 touchdowns. In just TWO seasons! He set many single-season receiving records at Texas Tech that still stand too this day.
Both of these Tech legends deserve the Hall of Fame! Be sure to check out Guns Up Nation on Twitter (@gunsupnation), Facebook, and Instagram (@gunsupnation) for more Texas Tech content every day!
