Former Aggie linebacker Dat Nguyen inducted into CFB Hall of Fame

January 9, 2017

Former Texas A&M linebacker Dat Nguyen has been named to the 2017 College Football Hall of Fame Class by The National Football Foundation and the College Hall of Fame, along with nine other former players and three coaches.

Nguyen played for Texas A&M from 1995-1998 and became the only player in school history to lead the team in tackles for four consecutive seasons. In 1998, he was named a unanimous First Team All-American and Big XII Defensive Player of the Year and won both the Bednarik and Lombardi awards, among other honors.

One of the greatest players to come out of Texas A&M, Nguyen went on to have a seven-year career with the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL.

Nguyen is the tenth Aggie to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame and joins college football legends like Duke, Florida and South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier, Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning and USC quarterback Matt Leinart in the 2017 class, among others.

You can see the full 2017 class here, which includes New Mexico's Brian Urlacher and San Diego State's Marshall Faulk.

Former Aggie linebacker Dat Nguyen inducted into CFB Hall of Fame

Greatly deserved. Gig 'Em Dat!
A favorite of many Aggies, well deserved honor.
Heard he has a Chick-Filet franchise now.
According to the link...
(987 players + 214 coaches in the cfb hall of fame) /
(5,190,000 persons (all time players + coaches))
= .0002

So about two ten thousands of one percent. That's the odds of making the cfb hall of fame. Wow.
Well deserved Dat. Congratulations. Gig Em Aggie.
2nd best player in A&M history. Great NFL career also. Very deserving. Congrats!
Awesome. Quality dude and a great player. Well deserved
Congratulations, Dat!!
Very well deserved.
Congratulations Dat! One of my all time favorites....

I was looking for Dat highlights the other day on the interwebs and came up relatively empty. Does anyone have any good links of the man in action? I found some stuff on youtube, including some great high school video (in 1 pixel by 1 pixel resolution).
Dat Nguyen for the win.
Favorite Aggie player

A well-deserved honor! Gig 'em, Dat!
