Galloway, Anderson headed to Ohio State Hall of Fame

One name is likely to grab most of the headlines, but the next Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame class will consist of more than Jim Tressel.

Also representing the football team will be two players from different eras.

Joey Galloway was a speedy wide receiver for the Buckeyes in the early 1990s. The Bellaire, Ohio, native caught 108 passes for 1,894 yards and 19 touchdowns from 1991-94 and was named All-Big Ten twice.

Picked eighth overall in the 1995 draft by the Seahawks, Galloway had a 15-year NFL career that also included stints with the Cowboys, Buccaneers, Patriots and Redskins. He caught 701 passes for 109,950 yards and 77 touchdowns as a pro.

Tim Anderson was a three-year starter in the secondary as the Buckeyes went 27-2, won two Big Ten titles and two national championships.

Part of the famed "Super Sophs", Anderson was named an All-American as a senior when he teamed with Jack Tatum, Ted Provost and Mike Sensibaugh to form one of the best secondaries in Ohio State history. With Anderson's induction, all four will be members of the OSU Athletics Hall of Fame.

Anderson was a first-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers and played professionally in the NFL and CFL.
