Part of the famed and feared Selmon brothers defensive line trio for Oklahoma’s vaunted defenses of the early and mid-1970s, Dewey Selmon was named to the 2024 College Football Hall of Fame Class by the National Football Foundation (NFF) and College Hall of Fame on Monday.

Selmon will become Oklahoma’s 24th former player in the College Hall of Fame and fifth straight defender (defensive backs Roy Williams in 2022 and Rickey Dixon in 2019 and linebackers Brian Bosworth in 2015 and Rod Shoate in 2013). He will be one of 19 former players and three former coaches inducted as part of the 2024 class during the 66th NFF Annual Awards Dinner on Dec. 10 in Las Vegas. This year’s group was named from a national ballot of 78 players and nine coaches from the Football Bowl Subdivision and 101 players and 32 coaches from the divisional ranks.
