Bob Brown became the most recent Husker to join the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, with his induction in 2004. Brown and Guy Chamberlin are the only Huskers to earn spots in both the College and Pro Football Halls of Fame. Brown's No. 64 jersey is permanently retired at Nebraska.
Three Huskers Among Greatest Players in Pro History
Three former Huskers have earned places among the greatest football players of all time in the hallowed halls of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
A legend at Nebraska, Guy Chamberlin became the premier end of the NFL during the 1920s. He was a player-coach on four NFL championship teams (1922-24, 1926). He concluded his six-year coaching record with a 56-14-5 (.780) record.
Chamberlin, who was affectionately referred to as "The Champ," earned All-America honors at Nebraska in 1915, before playing and coaching professionally from 1920 to 1927.
Roy "Link" Lyman pioneered a more sophisticated defensive play with a shifting, sliding style. He starred on four title teams (1922-23, 1924, 1933), and played on one losing team in 16 seasons of college and professional football.
Lyman, who played professionally for Canton, Cleveland, Frankford and Chicago from 1922 to 1934, lettered as a tackle at Nebraska in 1918, 1919 and 1921.
Nebraska's most recent addition to the Pro Football Hall of Fame celebrated his induction in 2004. Bob Brown, who joins Chamberlin as the only Huskers in both the College and Pro Football Halls of Fame, was the first All-American to play for Bob Devaney at Nebraska in 1963.
Brown spent 10 years in the NFL, including five seasons with Philadelphia, three with the Los Angeles Rams and two with the Oakland Raiders.
