Although he never played a down as a member of the ACC, Chris Redman did play for the Louisville Cardinals, who are now in the ACC. That is all that he needs to be inducted into the 2015 ACC Legends Class. The ACC announced the class on Tuesday, which is headlined by Tony Dorsett, Clinton Portis, and Warrick Dunn.

From the ACC:

Those leaders of national championship teams will join 10 other all-time greats as honorees at the ACC Night of Legends presented by the Belk Bowl on Friday, Dec. 4, and during the on-field pregame festivities at the 11th annual Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship.

Chris Redman (Louisville, 1996-99) – A lifetime Louisville native, Chris Redman followed the footsteps of his father and grandfather by playing football for the Cardinals. Redman closed his career as the NCAA all-time leader in passes attempted and completed while finishing the 1999 season as one of just three Division I-A signal-callers to throw for more than 12,000 yards in a career. A first-team all-Conference USA selection and the league’s Offensive Player of the Year in 1999, Redman also added the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award to his mantle and was the first quarterback to lead Louisville to back-to-back bowl appearances. Redman went on to play eight seasons in the NFL, where he battled back from several injuries to throw for 3,179 yards and 21 touchdowns in 31 games.

  1. You get crystal clear highs and deep lows, with
    a tight midrange unlike anything I have ever heard before in a pair of headphones.
    You also need to determine how often your kid will be using a
    particular piece. Just be sure to moderate it, unless she is
    reciprocating; shouting her name 50 times in a row is irritating- and particularly embarrassing if she has a roommate.
