Lorenzo White was named to the College Football Hall of Fame on Monday, joining a host of Spartans greats. (The induction ceremony will be in New York on Dec. 10.) White stood 5 feet 11 in East Lansing, but had a big impact on the Spartans, taking them to the 1988 Rose Bowl in his senior season. As coach George Perles told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in 1985, “We call him ‘Big Foot.’ He can gear down, let people go by him, then motor again,” referencing his size 12EE shoes.
