Rene Ingoglia and Steve Schubert, two of the greatest UMass football players of all time, have been placed on the ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame.
Ingoglia, an All-American running back in 1994 and 1995 and current color commentator for the UMass Sports Network, tweeted that he was placed on the ballot. Sure enough, he is listed on page 9 of the National Football Foundation’s Ballot Issue.
Ingoglia was All Yankee Conference honors three times, and was the conference’s all-time leading rusher with 4,624 yards. He is already a member of the UMass Hall of Fame.
Also on the ballot was Steve Schubert, another UMass Hall of Famer who played wide receiver for UMass from 1970-72. While at UMass, Schubert was an All-American and had 1,435 receiving yards. He went on to play in the NFL for six years with the New England Patriots and the Chicago Bears.
