I honestly do not know if this has ever happened before or not, but 2014 seems like quite the year for Michael Strahan. He will be a very busy man over the next several months, as he was elected to both the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as well as the Black College Football Hall of Fame.
Strahan was so dominant he drew double teams in college, and Texas Southern University coaches dubbed Strahan double teaming “Strahan rules.” By his junior season, Strahan began to turn himself into an NFL prospect. As a senior at Texas Southern, Strahan was selected All-America first team by The Poor Man’s Guide to the NFL Draft, The Sheridan Network, Edd Hayes Black College Sports Report and the Associated Press. He recorded 62 tackles with a school-record 19 quarterback sacks and 32 tackles totaling 142 yards in losses. He was also selected Division I-AA Defensive Player of the Year by The Poor Man’s Guide and Edd Hayes Black College Sports Report. In 1992 he was named 1st team All-Southwestern Athletic Conference and the SWAC’s Player of the Year for the 2nd consecutive season. He was also named Black College Defensive Player of the Year. As a junior in 1991, Strahan led the SWAC with 14.5 quarterback sacks. His 41.5 career sacks is a Texas Southern record.
In the 2001 season, Strahan set the NFL record for sacks in a single season with 22.5, the highest tally since it was made an official statistic in 1982; (breaking New York Jets’ Mark Gastineau’s total of 22). The former Giants second round pick, Strahan finished his career with 141.5 sacks and was elected to the pro football Hall of Fame in February. Congrats to Mr. Strahan for a great accomplishment.
