For the second time ever a former Montana Grizzly football player is headed for the College Football Hall of Fame.

On Monday, the National Football Foundation announced that legendary UM quarterback Dave Dickenson will be solidified as one of the top college players to ever suit up as he's become a member of the College Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018.

Dickenson's list of accomplishments goes for a very long list but most Griz fans remember the Great Falls product for leading Montana to their first National Championship in 1995. During his college career Dickenson was twice named an All-American and earned Big Sky Conference Offensive MVP three times. He still owns 20 Montana Grizzly records, eight Big Sky Conference records and two FCS records.

Dickenson went on to be Grey Cup champion in his Canadian Football League career and was also named CFL MVP.

The only other Griz football player to make it into the College Football Hall of Fame is William "Wild Bill" Kelly who suited up for Montana back in the 1920's.

Other big names joining Dickenson in the class of 2018 include Ed Reed, Calvin Johnson and Charles Woodson just to name a few of the ten players that will be honored during the official ceremony next December.
