The National Football Foundation announced their 2019 class for the College Football Hall of Fame, and it includes the arguably best Razorback of all-time. Two time Heisman Trophy finalist Darren McFadden will be part of the 15-man class.

McFadden is the 10th Razorback player and 20th former Razorback to earn a spot in the Hall of Fame. Danny Ford was the most recent in 2017 while Ronnie Caveness in 2010 was the most recent player. Wayne Harris (2004), Billy Ray Smith Jr. (2000), Chuck Dicus (1999), Loyd Phillips (1992), Lance Alworth (1984), Clyde Scott (1971), and Wear Schoonover (1967), are the other players to be inducted.

In addition to his two Heisman finalists, McFadden won the Doak Walker award and was a two-time SEC Offensive Player of the Year. He finished with 4,590 total rushing yards, second most in SEC history, and 41 rushing touchdowns. He still is part of a tie for most rushing yards in a game when he went off for 321 yards against South Carolina.

Still his most memorable moment was the upset over No. 1 LSU where McFadden ran for 206 yards on 32 carries, two rushing touchdowns and he threw for a third. Post game, his interview brought down the house.
