2023 INDUCTEES

JOE HADEN

Joe Haden, the tenth overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns, made history as the first true freshman to start at cornerback on UF’s opening day in 2007. A stalwart presence, he started all 40 games at cornerback for the Gators, concluding his college career with impressive stats: 218 total tackles, 157 solo, 34 pass breakups, eight interceptions, and 3.5 sacks. After a successful seven seasons with the Browns, Haden showcased his talents with the Pittsburgh Steelers through the 2021 season. In a fitting conclusion, he announced his retirement on September 21, 2022, signing a one-day contract with the Cleveland Browns.

EARNEST GRAHAM

Earnest Graham Jr. emerged as one of Florida’s premier running backs. He holds a prominent place in school records with 33 rushing touchdowns (third all-time) and 3,065 career rushing yards (fifth). His versatility extends to 3,468 all-purpose yards (ninth) and nine career 100-yard rushing games, tying for fifth in school history. A key player in multiple seasons, he led the 1999 squad with 654 yards, the 2001 team with 650 yards, and the 2002 team with 1,085 yards. His diverse skill set also includes 59 catches for 403 yards and a unique moment completing 1-of-5 passes for three yards and a touchdown. Recognized with honors like Second-team All-SEC in 2001 and Third-Team Freshman All-America in 1999, he stands as the sole player in school history with three 100-yard rushing games and an average of 135 yards per bowl game. Graham’s stellar contributions earned him UF’s “Most Outstanding Running Back” award thrice. Transitioning to the NFL, Graham signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2003 and remained with the team through 2011.

TERRENCE EDWARDS

Terrence Edwards left an indelible mark during his four-year tenure with the Georgia Bulldogs. Starting under coaches Jim Donnan (1999-2000) and Mark Richt (2001-02), Edwards dominated, leading the team in receiving for four consecutive seasons. His senior year showcased record-breaking achievements, including most career receptions (204), single season receiving yards (1,004 in 2002), career receiving yards (3,093), and career touchdown receptions (30). Recognized as a consensus All-SEC first-teamer in 2002, Edwards continued his success in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons before a nine-season stint in the CFL, ultimately retiring with 508 receptions, 7,637 yards, and 47 touchdowns. His football legacy culminated in his 2017 induction into the Winnipeg Football Club Hall of Fame.

MARK RICHT

Mark Richt, a revered figure in college football, is not only a dedicated husband and father but also a motivational speaker, philanthropist, and author. During his UGA tenure from 2001-2015, Richt achieved a remarkable record of 145-51 (.738). He was named SEC Coach of the Year in 2002 and 2005, led the team to two SEC championships, five SEC championship game appearances, and an impressive 15 consecutive bowl games (10-5). Richt’s coaching prowess positioned him among the rare few in NCAA Division I-A history to secure 135 or more wins in his first 14 seasons.  Twenty-four of his players went on to play in the Super Bowl. Currently serving as a studio analyst for the ACC Network, Richt boasts a storied coaching career with significant stints as head coach at the University of Miami and as an assistant for the Florida State Seminoles in addition to his time at the University of Georgia. As a testament to his coaching prowess, Richt received numerous accolades, including 2017 ACC Coach of the Year, and the prestigious 2017 Walter Camp Coach of the Year Award. Recently inducted into the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Hall of Fame, the 2023 Georgia Sports Hall of Fame, and the 2023 College Football Hall of Fame, Richt’s impact extends beyond the field.
