Charles Woodson, who remains the only primary defensive player to win college football's Heisman Trophy, will be enshrined among the game's all-time greats later this year.

He will be officially inducted on December 4, 2018, at the annual NFF awards dinner at the Hilton Midtown Hotel in New York City.

The Wichitan was a seventh-round draft pick by Indianapolis in 1998 and retired from professional football after spending time with the Colts and the Chicago Bears that season.
