HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Former Marshall wide receiver and return specialist Troy Brown, who went on to a long career with the New England Patriots, has been elected to the College Football Hall of Fame.

Brown is among four players and two coaches in this year’s divisional class, which includes players and coaches from the Football Championship Subdivision, Divisions II, III and the NAIA.

Also among the new Hall of Famers announced Tuesday by the National Football Foundation were Maryland Eastern Shore halfback Emerson Boozer, California Lutheran linebacker Brian Kelley and UMass tight end Milt Morin. Also in the class are two coaches: Willie Jeffries, who coached at Howard, Wichita State and South Carolina State, and Ted Kessinger, who coached at Bethany, Kan.

The newest class will be inducted the weekend of July 16 and 17 in South Bend, Ind.
