Brett Favre inducted into Southern Miss HOF

-

Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre was inducted into the Southern Mississippi Alumni Hall of Fame on Saturday during halftime of the Golden Eagles game against UTSA.

The NFL’s all-time passing yards leader returned to Hattiesburg, along with six other former Southern Miss players, to accept the honor at the schools annual homecoming event.

Favre was the Golden Eagles starting signal caller from 1987-1990 and compiled a 29-17 record while breaking a number of school records.

Southern Miss was the only school to offer Favre a scholarship and when the Gulfport native first stepped on campus coaches wanted the gun-slinger to play defensive back, but after an alleged night of drinking a hungover Favre was thrown into the action in just his third game of his freshman season and led the Golden Eagles to a come from behind victory against Tulane–leaving no doubt what position number 4 would play.

Favre has had quite the busy, award filled 2015. In July he was inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.
