Anthony Poindexter salute set for Saturday.


Official National Football Foundation news release:

The University of Virginia and The National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Hall of Fame announced that they will jointly honor 2020 College Football Hall of Fame electee Anthony Poindexter with an NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute, presented by Fidelity Investments. The Salute will take place this Saturday, Oct. 16, during the Cavaliers’ home football game against Duke. Coverage of the game will start at 12:30 p.m. ET on ACC RSN.

“It’s great. But there’s a lot of people who helped me get here,” Poindexter said after the announcement in March 2020. “Obviously my family and all the coaches I’ve had, all the way up through youth and all the way through college and my teammates.”

The NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute program, which began with the inaugural College Football Hall of Fame Class in 1951, has become a hallowed tradition, and to this day the singular events remain the first of numerous activities in the Hall of Fame experience.

During the NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salutes, each electee returns to his respective school to accept a Hall of Fame plaque that will stay on permanent display at the institution. The events take place on the field during a home game, and many Hall of Famers cite the experience as the ultimate capstone to their careers, providing them one more chance to take the field and be recognized in front of their home crowd.
