He hasn’t played long enough in the NFL and he hasn’t retired yet, so he’s obviously not an NFL Hall of Fame defensive back. If he can remain healthy and continue his high level of play he might be one in the future. That being said, Lardarius Webb can claim he is a Hall of Famer. On Saturday, September 13th, 2014 Webb was inducted into Nicholls State’s Hall of Fame class. He was honored along with fellow Colonels Gerald Butler, Mike Mohler, and Christina Thornton.
Courtesy of Ravens Insider from the Baltimore Sun, Webb had this to say about his honoring:
“It was awesome,” he said. “It’s a blessing to be in the Hall of Fame. I’m just very honored to be a part of that…“
Butler is a fellow NFL football player and was drafted into the league by the Chicago Bears in 1977 in the seventh round. He wound up playing for the Kansas City Chiefs in that season which was his only one in the league. Mohler; a left handed pitcher, spent 8 seasons in MLB and bounced around the league with 4 different clubs. Thornton holds many Nicholls State single season awards in softball and also ranks within the top 3 in many career stats.
Webb though is the most highly decorated Colonel for football as he has 40 awards to his name in his two seasons at the college. While he was drafted in the third round by the Ravens and was recently signed to a significant contract he has not forgotten where he came from. He has been very active with charity work and returns to Louisiana for his football camp.
