Once Again, Joe Jacoby Named Semifinalist For Pro Football Hall Of Fame

Johnson's college coaching credentials, including a national championship as University of Miami coach, are not considered by the Pro Football Hall of Fame committee.

This is Dawkins' second year of eligibility and Owens' third.

Former Vikings Randy Moss and Steve Hutchinson are among six first-year eligible candidates to make the field of 27 semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2018, the hall announced Tuesday evening.

Owens, who prepped at Benjamin Russell in Alexander City, has reached finalist status in both of his previous years of eligibility without being selected to take the final step into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Jimmy Johnson, Edgerrin James, and Ray Lewis have all been selected, giving the University of Miami a strong representation in what is an impressive group of former coaches and players.

James' 12,246 career rushing yards rank 12th all-time.

Bruce, the former Rams star, attended Fort Lauderdale Dillard High. Twenty-seven modern-era semifinalists (from an initial pool of 108) have moved on to the next round of the selection process, with a cut-down to 15 finalists coming in January, followed by the selection of the gold-jacket recipients. Owens, like Dawkins, was a finalist for the Class of 2017. He was a nine-time Pro Bowl player and six-time All-Pro (including four times on the first team). The selection committee will meet February 3, 2018, to determine the 2018 Hall of Fame class. Former Eagles safety Brian Dawkins and wide receiver Terrell Owens.

Owens will face stiff competition from four other wide receivers that made the list of semifinalist as well.
