Former Texas Tech footballer and NFL football man Zach Thomas has been named one of 15 finalists for the 2020 Pro Football Hall of Fame Class, which only takes 5 in each class.
In an interview with the NFL Network, Thomas said that he was honored and humbled to be listed as one of the 15. Thomas talked quite a bit about how former Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins head coach Jimmy Johnson drafted him out of the 5th round from Texas Tech. Drafted in 1996, Thomas played for the Dolphins until 2008 where he had short stints with the Cowboys and Kansas City Chiefs (I don’t even know if he actually played for KC). Thomas registered, 1,720 tackles in his professional career.
“I’m just honored and humbled.”
