Hoage, a Phi Beta Kappa honoree at Georgia (Class of 1984), was a two-time consensus first-team All-America who went on to play 13 years in the NFL, winning a Super Bowl ring while playing for the Washington Redskins in 1992. He finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy balloting in 1983 -- highest finish ever for a defensive back at that time
