Georgia’s David Pollack returns to College Football Hall of Fame ballot

Georgia most-decorated player in program history is on the College Football Hall of Fame ballot for a second year.

David Pollack was a three-time First Team All-American (consensus in 2002, 2004) and recipient of the 2004 Lombardi and Bednarik awards. A Two-time SEC Defensive Player of the Year, Pollack led Bulldogs to consecutive SEC title games during his tenure in Athens (2001 to 2004).

Pollack remains the Bulldogs’ all-time leader in sacks (36) and tackles for loss (58.5).

Pollack was a first-round NFL draft pick in 2005 by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Matt Stinchcomb, a two-time All-American offensive lineman at Georgia, was selected to the College Football Hall of Fame class in 2018.

Pollack is among 76 FBS (formerly Division I) players and five coaches who have been nominated for induction.

Voting for the 2020 class ends June 21. The new members will be inducted during the 63rd NFF Annual Awards Dinner on Dec. 8, 2020, in New York.
