Wednesday Round-Up: Seahawks Legend Steve Hutchinson Named to 2024 College Football Hall of Fame Class

Pro Football Hall of Fame guard and Seahawks Legend Steve Hutchinson was named as a 2024 College Football Hall of Fame inductee by the National Football Foundation.


Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Wednesday, January 17 — about your Seattle Seahawks.

Steve Hutchinson named a 2024 College Football Hall of Famer for his time at the University of Michigan.

The Coral Springs, Florida native arrived on campus in 1996 as a defensive tackle, converting to offensive guard as a redshirt freshman. The following season, Hutchinson would rise to starter, helping the 12-0 Wolverines earn the 1997 National Championship, defeating Washington State 21-16 in the Rose Bowl. Hutchinson earned All Big-Ten honors in each of his four playing seasons, taking home the Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year Award in 2000. Now, Hutchinson becomes the 11th Michigan offensive lineman to be honored by the college hall of fame.

After going his final-two seasons at Michigan without allowing a sack, Hutchinson earned All-Pro and Pro-Bowl honors three times across five seasons in Seattle before joining the Minnesota Vikings in 2006. In six seasons in Minnesota, Hutchinson made four more Pro Bowl appearances and was a four-time All-Pro, and was named to the 50 Greatest Vikings team. In 2010, Hutchinson was named to the NFL's 2000's All-Decade Team before playing his final season with the Tennessee Titans in 2012.

Hutchinson is now the 40th Michigan Wolverine to earn a spot in the hall, while joining a small group of athletes enshrined in both the College and Pro Football Halls of Fame.
