On Friday, the Texas High School Football Hall of Fame announced its Class of 2013 would include Green Bay Packers quarterback Graham Harrell and his coaching father, Sam Harrell.
After setting several records as quarterback at Ennis High School — including 12,532 passing yards and 167 touchdown passes — Harrell attended Texas Tech. He set NCAA records with 134 passing touchdowns and 39 consecutive 200-yard games, tied Colt Brennan's record with 20 games of at least 400 passing yards and ranks second with 15,793 passing yards. He also became the first NCAA player to post multiple 5,000-yard passing seasons.
Harrell was a two-time all-state selection and the Gatorade Texas Player of the Year. He won a state championship with his father as the coach in 2004.
