"Each of these men has established himself among the absolute best to have ever played or coached the game, and we look forward to immortalizing their incredible accomplishments", National Football Foundation chairman and 1989 College Football Hall of Famer Archie Manning said in a statement. His overall record is 179-96-1 in 23 seasons at Idaho (two stints), Wyoming, Washington State, Miami, Oregon State and Arizona State.

The rest of the class includes Florida State's Terrell Buckley, Oklahoma's Rickey Dixon, John Carroll's London Fletcher, Texas A&M's Jacob Green, North Carolina State's Torry Holt, Arkansas' Darren McFadden, Arizona State's Jake Plummer, Wisconsin's Joe Thomas, Michigan State's Lorenzo White and Mississippi's Patrick Willis.
The other coach in the class of 2019 is Joe Taylor, who won four Black College national championships with Hampton and also was the head coach of Howard, Virginia Union and Florida A&M. The 2005 Pro Bowler led the Broncos to a 13-3 regular season record and an appearance in the AFC Championship game. Ismail was part of Notre Dame's 1988 national championship team and had six return touchdowns in his career, including five on kickoffs. Against USC in the Rose Bowl, Young passed for 267 yards, ran for 200 and scrambled for a game-winning touchdown on fourth down with 19 seconds left in a 41-38 victory. He is best remembered for taking two kicks back for touchdowns against MI in 1989. "As the eye in the sky to college football's greatest coaches, players and moments, it's only fitting that the Goodyear blimp joins the College Football Hall of Fame in a year when the game celebrates its 150th anniversary".
