It was announced in New York earlier today that Notre Dame Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown has been elected to the college football Hall of Fame. As reported by WNDU:

One of the greatest players to ever wear the gold helmet was named to the College Football Hall of Fame on Thursday.

Tim Brown became the sixth Heisman Trophy winner from Notre Dame in 1987. He later went on to a stellar career in the NFL.

The announcment was made Thursday in New York City.

Brown was the first wide receiver to ever win the Heisman and is one of two Heisman winners named to this year's class, joining Miami QB Gino Torretta.

"Touchdown Timmy" set 19 school records at Notre Dame and was a 2-time All-American.

The 6th overall pick in the 1988 NFL Draft by the Raiders, Brown was named to the Pro Bowl nine times.

Brown's class will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in December in NYC and enshrined in South Bend in July, 2010.

Congratulations Tim!
