    The Gators have three names on the 2020 ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame! OT Lomas Brown is on the ballot for a fifth year, while DL Kevin Carter and DL Brad Culpepper are making their first appearance on the ballot.

    Lomas Brown was inducted into the UF Athletic Hall of Fame as a Gator Great in 1995. Brown was a member of the famed Great Wall of Florida from 1981 to 1984. He was a consensus first-team All-American on Florida’s famed 1984 squad, a two-time All-SEC pick, and 1984 SEC Jacobs Blocking Trophy winner. The Detroit Lions selected Lomas with the 6th overall pick of the 1985 NFL Draft. He was named to the Pro Bowl seven times, 3X All-Pro, 2X NFC Champion, and 1X Super Bowl Champion.

He is still 7th on the Gators’ career sack list, 4th highest single season total ever with 11.5 sacks in ’94. The St. Louis Rams selected Carter in the first round of the 1995 NFL Draft. He went on to be Rookie of the Year in '95, team MVP in '98, Super Bowl champion in XXXIV, 2X Pro Bowler, and All-Pro '99.

    Brad Culpepper was inducted into the UF Athletic Hall of Fame as a Gator Great in 2001. He was a Consensus All-American, Draddy Trophy winner, first-team All-SEC, and SEC champion.
