Charles Woodson's Hall of Fame induction pushes Michigan to impressive milestone
NFL legend and Michigan alum Charles Woodson officially earned a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Famer on Saturday night.
By earning this honor, it means the Wolverines have now had a representative be inducted into the HOF for three straight years. Woodson joins offensive lineman Steve Hutchinson and defensive back Ty Law.
According to the University of Michigan, it is just the fourth program to accomplish this feat.

This is a celebration of one of the best football careers in the history of the sport. Woodson is famously the last defensive player to win the Heisman Trophy, doing so in 1997. He also won a number of other individual awards and the National Championship in 1997.
As a pro, Woodson was named to nine Pro Bowls, was a defensive player of the year and won Super Bowl XLV with the Green Bay Packers.
It will be interesting to track next year’s class to see if the Wolverines can make it four years in a row.
